Saturday 9th September is the Last Night of the Proms, a celebration of all kinds of music and culture so for today's famous dragon I thought I'd go for something a bit more classical.
The Magic Flute - Mozart
The Magic Flute is an opera by Mozart (well he wrote the music anyway) that was first performed in September 1791, two months before Mozart died. In its opening scene, a prince is being chased by a dragon. The dragon is killed by three ladies, servants of the Queen of the Night. The Queen then asks the prince to rescue her daughter, and the story goes on from there. The above video was made by BBC Bristol and the Welsh National Opera.
Do watch the video, and at least turn on the proms in time for "Land of Hope and Glory"!
