Notes & Reviews:
This production of Mozart's Zauberflöte received enormous and unanimous approval when it was premiered in Salzburg.
This outstanding production of Mozart's great opera Die Zauberflote (The Magic Flute) comes live from the 1982 Salzburg Festival. Stage Director Jean-Pierre Ponnelle has created a staging which became part of the Salzburg Festival for a decade after this performance, successfully establishing him as a legend in the opera world. James Levine and the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra create a perfect blend of intelligence and lightness in their interpretation of Mozart's music, and the vocalists are some of the best of their generation. Included among these outstanding opera stars is Edita Gruberova, who was touted after this performance as "the best-ever Queen of the Night" by Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung.Notes & Reviews:
