Simon McBurney’s five-star production of The Magic Flute returns to English National Opera this week, opening on Thursday 14 March.
Lucy Crowe returns to the role of Pamina, which won her unanimous praise from the critics in the same production at ENO in 2016:
“London’s best sung Pamina in years”
Martin Kettle, The Guardian
“Lucy Crowe as Pamina was exhilarating from the moment she appeared, displaying a freshness and purity of voice that never waned. Her vocal versatility – an ease at the higher register, careful breath control – was complemented by an innate emotional colouring of the voice.”
Dominic Lowe, bachtrack
Lucy will be joined on stage by company favourite Brindley Sherratt (Sarastro), Jonathan Lemalu (Speaker and Sarastro, 9 & 11 Apr), and Harewood Artist David Webb (First Priest/First Armed Man). Ben Gernon conducts.
Performances take place at the London Coliseum from 14 March to 11 April. Find out more here.
