The Magic Flute

Work as an Associate Lighting Designer, reviving Nick Hytner’s production of “The Magic Flute” for English National Opera.

Part fairytale, part comedy, The Magic Flute follows a Prince and his servant in their quest for love. With Tamino’s magic flute and Papageno’s magic bells, they set off to rescue Pamina from evil priest Sarastro. Guided through trials by three spirits, Tamino and Pamina are ultimately united, and Papageno finds his promised Papagena.

Relighting Repertory Opera on a huge scale at the London Coliseum, with over 25000 tickets sold for these final performances to mark the production’s 25th Anniversary.
