Created by John Savournin of Opera North, it was performed for CBBC last summer. And this Sunday (24 February) it comes to the National Centre For Early Music for two performances.
Telling the tale of a prince’s search for a princess, it is an interactive adventure story complete with puppets suitable to ages 4+.
As part of the show, you will be invited take part in a creative arts experience beforehand. Not only will your creation feature in the performance, but you will also be able to take it home afterwards.
‘They find high notes funny!’
We caught up with the director, writer and performer of the Mini Magic Flute, John Savournin, to learn more about the show.
The reality is that it is raw, honest, breathtaking and far from alienating! It’s got to be one of the most exciting theatrical experiences one can have.
