    I had the pleasure of seeing the Glyndebourne Touring Opera's Magic Flute earlier this week - for those of you who like a bit of opera and also those who haven't been before, this is one not to be missed. I can't remember the last time I heard an audience laugh at the Glyndebourne opera house - this is is truly wonderful version, the Queen of The Night's aria one of the musical highlights.

    A right good night out - coming to a theatre near you over the coming months.

    I was dragged to see it couple of years back with school, but in the end quite enjoyed it, in a funny kind of way

    Having once played the Magic Flute every night for 6 months, I think I'll pass in this occaision! (For those that don't know it the music is fantastic).

    Isle of Arran and lovin' it!
    If I recall correctly, Bram Gay has arranged a version a performable version of the opera accompanied by a brass band!

    I can certainly agree with Mike on this one... I played it for too long also (and the Timp part's not really that "riveting" !)

    You might also want to have a look at the following link... It's a Brass Band Version of the Aria from The Magic Flute:

    He has indeed - picked it up on ebay a while back. It was recorded by the Gothenburg brass band, and works quite well.

    My wife and I went to see "Magic Flute" in Cardiff with Welsh National Opera many years back. The performance was a little late starting, and we had to leave before the end to catch the last train back up the valley. You can imagine how we felt when the train was also late, having been delayed to allow opera-goers to get home :shock:
