The Magic Flute

This bewitching coming-of-age adventure tells the epic tale of Prince Tamino on his quest to rescue Pamina, daughter of the Queen of the Night, who is being held captive by the Priest of the Sun.

Written by the multi-award winning John Godber, this modern classic will see the boys catapulted into the 21st century.
