Glyndebourne’s new production of The Magic Flute comes to the Proms in a special semi-staging. Mozart’s final opera is a beguiling mix of enchantment and Enlightenment politics. A score overflowing with melody and invention and a fairy-tale cast of characters together create one of the composer’s best-loved comedies. Antonello Manacorda conducts an exciting young cast including Sofia Fomina, Björn Bürger and David Portillo.
