Set between the worlds of a secondary school and a subconscious dreamscape, this production looks at a group of teenagers who are navigating friendship, loneliness, competition, desire and love. 

Driven by the incantatory and inspirational force of the Queen of the Night, Pamina fights hard to understand a girl's right to equality and respect within Sarastro's school, where inherited gender norms and latent, insidious misogyny are writ large. There are no bird people or princes in this production, only one egg.

This special production is directed by Polly Graham, Artistic Director of Longborough Festival Opera and two-time winner of Best Opera productions at the Welsh Theatre Awards.
