The company's Christmas offering is a revival of Nicholas Hytner's production of Mozart's The Magic Flute (Antwerp 12-29 Dec, Gent 7-21 Jan), with a particularly appetising cast which includes Walter Fink (Sarastro), Richard Clement (Tamino), Catrin Wyn-Davies (Pamina), Michael Kraus (Papageno) and Guy de Mey (Monostatos). Jeanine Thames is Queen of the Night and the speaker is Marc Claesen. Marc Piollet conducts.
