Sing ‘Magic Flute’ Day at Jackdaws!

Have you always wanted to have a go at singing an aria, duet or trio from an opera?

Join the Come and Sing Opera Day and let William Carslake guide you through Mozart’s magical masterpiece ‘The Magic Flute’ on Sunday 14th December. Sing some of the choruses and have a go at the solos and ensembles.

Tutor William says, “We will sing in English, and can send out in music advance if wished.  Please let us know if you would like to sing a certain part!” William will lead the day in his usual fun, yet informative style.

‘The Magic Flute’ has enchanted music and theatre lovers of all ages for hundreds of years. With charm and wit, it tells the story of a terrifying and joyful journey in pursuit of love, wisdom and happiness. From the stratospheric arias of the Queen of the Night, through the jolly folk tunes of Papageno the Birdcatcher, to the profound music of Sarastro, leader of the enlightened ones, it is a full expression of Mozart’s musical and dramatic genius.

‘Often referred to by many as Mozart’s only pantomime, The Magic Flute is a riot of life, lust and ludicrous plot that somehow belies its portentous position in Mozart’s output’  – Classic FM.

The course is open to all singers and will take place at Jackdaws in Great Elm, just three miles from Frome.  The day runs from 11.00am to 3.00pm, and the fee of £35 includes a delicious home cooked lunch.  Visit, email, or call 01373 812383 for further details, or to book a place.
