The Magic Flute starring Jack Wolfe

Jack Wolfe may come from a musician family and a theater background—The Magic Flute is one of his most challenging projects of this career.

The film is adapted from the centuries-old opera play by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart into a German libretto by Emanuel Schikaneder.

The cast includes Wolfe, F. Murray Abraham, Iwan Rheon, Stéfi Celmi, Asha Banks, Stefan Konarske, Niamh McCormack, Amir Wilson, and Tedros Teclebrhan. It also includes international and renowned opera stars, such as French soprano Sabine Devieilhe (Opéera National de Paris), Mexican-French tenor Rolando Villazón, and U.S. bass Morris Robinson (Metropolitan Opera, New York) among the ensemble cast.

Here is the official synopsis:

From executive producer Roland Emmerich (Moonfall) comes a captivating film that 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. Tim (Jack Wolfe) has been dreaming his whole life about attending Mozart All Boys Music School, but already his first days there confront him with a hostile headmaster (F. Murray Abraham), the stresses of a first love, and serious doubts about the authenticity of his singing voice. When he discovers a mystical gateway in the school’s library, he is pulled into the fantastic cosmos of Mozart’s opera, The Magic Flute, where imagination has no limits and the Queen of the Night (Sabine Devieilhe) reigns.
