Behind the scenes of The Magic Flute

Backstage | Mozart

Welcome behind the scenes of The Magic Flute at Royal College of Music where director Polly Graham tells us about her take on Mozart's opera. She sets the action within a secondary school and a dream landscape - offering a retelling of gender relations. This interview features five young singers from both casts: Charlotte Bowden (Pamina), Sofia Kirwan-Baez (Papagena), Edward Jowle (Papageno), Ted Black (Prince Tamino) and Dafydd Jones (Monostatos).

The Magic Flute - Watch the full performance on OperaVision from 1 January to 1 July 2022.
