►The timeless Coast Salish realm. On a quest for love and enlightenment, young Tamino finds himself at the centre of a battle between the forces of light and darkness. Accompanied by an absurdly lovelorn bird catcher, Papageno, and protected by his spirit-guide, Sarastro, Tamino confronts the formidable Queen of the Night, bravely endures terrifying trials, and is finally united in love with his beloved Pamina.
Set on the rocky shores and in the ancient rainforests of the Pacific Coast, VO’s highly praised 2007 production, with new design elements, artfully blends Mozart’s beguiling music with indigenous mythology and visually stunning design. The eternal story of humankind’s search for spiritual harmony will move you; the human characters, spirit-animals and supernatural creatures will delight you.
Original production conceived with the guidance of First Peoples’ Cultural Council and an advisory group of First Nations artists.
