This Event Is Part of Perth Festival of The Arts

In this ground-breaking production of Mozart’s The Magic Flute, the classic opera unfolds within the confines of an asylum, injecting new life into the timeless narrative.

Featuring a star cast from Scotland’s operatic scene, the story follows Tamino, a troubled patient who embarks on a surreal journey, set in motion by the mysterious Queen of the Night. The opera's themes of love, enlightenment, and the triumph of good over evil take on a poignant resonance as they reflect the internal struggles of the characters within the asylum setting.

What sets this adaptation apart is the use of Scots language, infusing the libretto with a rich linguistic tapestry. The arias, duets, and ensembles are reimagined with a Scots flair that brings a unique and immersive quality to the performance.

Scots Language libretto by Dr Michael Dempster.

The Scots Opera Project is a professional opera company who have performed live on BBC Radio Scotland’s Classics Unwrapped and STV’s The Riverside Show and in 2019, was nominated for both a Scots Language Award and Scottish Gaelic Award in Arts and Culture.
