17 May, National Opera House, Wexford
19 May, University Concert Hall, Limerick
21–24 May, Gaiety Theatre, Dublin 

Mozart’s enchanting final opera. His most popular stage work. A timeless moral tale in a world of clashing cultures. Sung in German with English subtitles Trials of courage and love. A journey that encounters serpents and magic interventions.

The dark realm of the vocally virtuosic Queen of the Night struggles against the judgement and reason of Sarastro, high priest of Isis and Osiris. In between, a separated couple cope with trials and rituals, and Papageno, a humble birdcatcher, searches for a wife.
