Freemasons Great Hall



​Mozart’s classic Masonic story is brought to life in a new production created especially for staging in the Freemasons Great Hall. As the Earth falls beneath the shadow of a total solar eclipse, Tamino finds himself in a mysterious new world where surreal is his new reality. Pushed and pulled by opposing forces, he encounters strange creatures, true love and a series of epic, transformative trials.

Director and designer David Lampard’s new vision for this popular opera draws inspiration from the elegance of masonic symbolism, focused through a 1950’s lens to create a vintage fantasy that explores social issues both timeless and contemporary.

The production will feature a who’s who of established and emerging South Australian operatic talent including Joanna McWaters as Queen of the Night and Robert England as Sarastro, with the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra conducted by Luke Dollman.The Magic Flute will be sung in English, in an intimate setting that will truly transport you to another era. This was one of Mozart’s last and undeniably lasting works, and has been a favourite with adults and children alike for more than two centuries. It’s a wonderful opportunity to experience the beauty of Mozart’s music but you’ll need to book early. Seats are genuinely limited.
