Mozart’s The Magic Flute
 Thursday 4th July 2024, 5pm

Enjoy a rare opportunity to hear Mozart’s classic opera in the dramatic surroundings of Owlpen, brought to you buy the critically-acclaimed Wild Arts

This isn’t just any production; it’s sung in English by a dream cast of exceptional singers, accompanied by a chamber orchestra of 10 top musicians. Directed by James Hurley, designed by Sophie Lincoln, and conducted by Orlando Jopling, this production promises to be a remarkable experience for opera aficionados and newbies alike.

Wild Arts is a charity dedicated to making music accessible, fresh, and enjoyable for everyone. They are passionate about innovating and reimagining opera to create vibrant, engaging productions that resonate with a wide audience.

The Magic Flute is the perfect piece to introduce young people to opera. It’s fun, magical, full of hummable tunes, and not too long. 

The performance will take place in the Pole Barn, made using traditional roundwood timber framing techniques using larch from the Owlpen valley; a lovely, intimate space with perfect acoustics for live music. There will be a long interval for picnics. 

You are welcome to arrive from 5pm to set up your picnic, and bring food, drink, rugs, chairs, tables, friends, candelabras and whatever else you would like. The opera will start at 6pm, with a long interval from 7 – 8.30pm, finishing at around 9.30pm.

If you would rather not bring food with you, you can pre-order picnics and barbecue food from us directly: please get in touch on hello@owlpen.com for details. 

You are welcome to stay after the show to enjoy a drink with the stars, under the stars.

Tickets will be strictly limited to 150, so do book early to secure your place.

There is a discount for groups of six guests.
