Review: Exceptionally good voices in The Magic Flute from Opera Anywhere
Mozart’s The Magic Flute is open to a wide range of interpretations and as long as it is well sung and sensitively staged it will always impress. This was certainly true of Opera Anywhere’s visit to St Mary In The Castle in Hastings last Friday. The opera may have been pared down but the narrative made sense throughout and many of the voices were exceptionally good.
Hastings Philharmonic have not been lucky with the weather this year but it does not seem to deter its audience who turned out in the bitter cold of Saturday evening for a Mozart concert which included one of his most pessimistic works.
