By Francisco Salazar

Shout Factory is set to release “The Magic Flute” on March 10, 2023.

The film, which is directed by Florian Sigl and executive produced by Roland Emmerich, stars Jack Wolfe, F. Murray Abraham, Iwan Rheon, Stéfi Celma, Asha Banks, Stefan Konarske, Niamh McCormack, Amir Wilson, and Tedros Teclebrhan.

The film also includes international opera stars Sabine Devieilhe, Rolando Villazón, and Morris Robinson.

“The Magic Flute” follows a teen on two journeys: one into a prestigious boarding school to fulfill his aspirations as a singer, and another into a parallel world filled with fantasy and adventure.

In a press release Roland Emmerich said, “Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s masterpiece ‘The Magic Flute’ has always been my favorite opera ever since I experienced this magical story as a young adult. I was immediately drawn to the concept of cinematically reimagining this story when the filmmaking team approached me with their idea, which I was thrilled to champion. The entire team brought their fantastic vision to the screen in an exciting and innovative way. I look forward to Shout! Studios bringing this epic journey to audiences to once again be enchanted by the universally acclaimed and world-famous music.”
