To start the new Season at the Royal Opera House Fernando can be seen returning to the incredible production by David McVicar of the Magic Fute. Two Mozart in one Summer! What a privilege!
David McVicar’s classic production embraces both the seriousness and comedy of Mozart’s work. The audience is transported to a fantastical world of dancing animals, flying machines and dazzlingly starry skies. The setting provides a wonderful backdrop for Mozart’s kaleidoscopic score, from the Queen of the Night’s coloratura fireworks to Tamino and Pamina’s lyrical love duets and Papageno’s hearty, folksong-like arias.
Fernando can be seen in the Opera Mitridate Re Di Ponto in the Royal Opera House this summer! The first of two Mozarts in one summer. A treat!
Directed by Graham Vick and Choreographed by Ron Howell this production is ‘considered a milestone in the staging of 18th-century opera’ (The Guardian). Vick draws parallels between the stylized form of Baroque opera and the traditions of Japanese and Indian stagecraft – influences echoed in Paul Brown’s stunningly opulent designs.
Only four shows 26th and 29th of June and 1st and 7th of July
