South Africa’s Isango Ensemble Brings The Magic Flute to Los Angeles
South African Tourism Presents Isango Ensemble
From Sir Ian McKellen to Archbishop Desmond Tutu, everyone is raving about the magic of The Magic Flute, performed in English by South Africa’s unforgettable Isango Ensemble! Mozart’s masterpiece about love and redemption is boldly re-imagined South African style in this exhilarating, life-affirming opera that is “for everyone aged eight to eighty” (Sunday Telegraph).
Winner of the Olivier Award for “Best Musical Revival in London” and co-produced by Eric Abraham, Isango’s The Magic Flute is a dizzying array of marimbas, swirling dancers, and brightly patterned costumes. The twenty singers, many of who come from Cape Town’s surrounding townships, pack enough vocal energy to raise the roof, and leave you with “a rare sense of life-enhancing joy” (Sunday Times, UK).
