Mozart: The Magic Flute / Deon van der Walt, Ulrike Sonntag, Cornelius Hauptamann, Andrea Frei, Thomas Mohr. Wolfgang Gonnenwein [DVD]

Notes & Reviews:

It was certainly remarkable that only a year after all the Mozart anniversary performances in 1991, the Ludwigsburger Schlossfestspiele decided on a Magic Flute production. The premiere of the production recorded here took place on August 26, 1992. This was no easy task for director Axel Manthey and conductor Wolfgang Gonnenwein. With clear, naïve images combined with a beautiful, dramatic play of colors, Manthey succeeds in teasing out the different aspects of this opera. The larger-than-life symbols (snake, lightning, tree) also help with this. The singers Deon van der Walt, Ulrike Sonntag, Thomas Mohrand Patrizia Rozario give a thrilling performance
