    South Africa’s Award-winning Isango Ensemble gloriously bursts on the scene with The Magic Flute, Mozart’s classic opera, completely reimagined, transformed and transported. The enchanting story tells of a man's quest to rescue his wrongly captured love, and the trials they must endure to be together. Drawing its artists mostly from the townships surrounding Cape Town, this energetic ensemble has traveled all over the world, and with the help of some magical musical instruments, they are able to bring an old story new joy and pleasure. Isango Ensemble is a South African theatre company that draws its artists mainly from the townships surrounding Cape Town. Isango’s stage productions and films have played to sold-out audiences across the world and have received numerous international awards. Isango’s productions reimagine classics from the Western theatre canon, finding a new context for the stories within a South African or township setting, thereby creating inventive work relevant to the heritage of the nation. Isango intends to further develop this process by building a truly mixed audience, reflecting and uniting a diverse South African nation.
