Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s The Magic Flute is re-adapted in a feast of world-music influences by the multi-ethnic Piazza Vittorio Orchestra. Prince Tamino’s quest to set his love, the beautiful Tamina, free from the charms of the maleficent wizard Sarastro is sung and performed through sounds coming from Africa, Asia and South America in a magnificent mix of fascinating imagery and immortal music.
