A Whistle Stop Opera is coming to Ushaw
September 28th 2021
Whistle Stop Opera : The Magic Flute is suitable for the whole family. The historic grounds of Ushaw house setting the scene for this tale of a noble quest to save the climate.
Prince Tamino has fallen madly in love with the beautiful Pamina, daughter of the Queen of the Night. All appears well in the kingdom, but look closer and you’ll notice there’s something strange afoot in this mythical world…
Much to the confusion of bird-catcher Papageno, birds are disappearing. Animals are no longer coming out to hear Tamino’s music. The magical world of flutes and dancing bells is changing, and it’s up to Tamino to do something about it before it’s too late!
Tickets are available here, and don’t pass up the opportunity to stay after the show. Luxurious rooms await…
