By Mozart. The West Australian Opera. Directed by Göran Järvefelt. July 15-26 2014
I firmly believe that if people who say they don't like opera were to watch this production of The Magic Flute, there would be a lot more opera lovers, as it would be difficult not to love this production. Sung in English, it tells a clear, interesting story, is easy to follow and a joy to watch.
Alexander Lewis is gorgeously likeable as the boyish, sweetly voiced, prince, Tamino, perfectly paired with Katya Webb as the princess Pamina, whose lovely voice is matched by a captivating performance.
