The Magic Flute is a superb fairy story, with dragons, demons, a handsome prince, and a lovely maiden in dire straights, seriously in need of rescue. Don’t worry about the subtitles, there are none, this production will be sung in English. Serbian-born soprano Milica Ilic is the Queen of the Night, sharing the stage with Jason Barry-Smith, Jonathon Abernathy, and veteran baritone Conal Coad lends some considerable gravitas in his role as the high priest Sarasto; along with a chorus drawn from community choirs and the Gold Coast’s own surf life saving club.
