Originally commissioned by the Viennese music-hall impresario Emanuel Schikaneder, the Magic Flute has become one of the most widely performed and best-loved operas in the international repertory.
Now in its 21st year, Opera Brava presents a packed programme of classic productions at beautiful locations. With many top names from the national and international opera companies in its productions, Opera Brava has won the acclaim of critics and music professionals, and given pleasure to countless thousands of opera fans.
