Product Description

This production of Mozarts Magic Flute received enormous and unanimous approval, when it was premiered in Salzburg. Endless applause on the night and an unusual state of accord from the international press where enthusiastic reviews soon gave this staging the status of a legend. Of course, none of that would have had the same appeal if it had not been in accord with Mozarts music, performed quite un-theoretically, with perfect blend of lightness and pathos, humour and profundity, by James Levine and the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra; nor would it all have worked without a truly Festival-worthy cast of singers whose strengths were perfectly balanced and every single one of whom right down to the members of the chorus was totally committed to the work.


Edita Gruberova, the best Queen of the Night there is today, dazzling in the coloratura passages, powerful in the middle register, unambiguous in her acting. --Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung

Opera and singspiel, mystery play and popular Maschinenkomödie, immediacy and profundity. () An ideal Magic Flute with lots of feeling, funny characters, circles of flaming stars, a chariot drawn by lions, a monster in the form of a giant serpent and dancing animals --Süddeutsche Zeitung

Levine's Large-scale conducting and Jean-Pierre Ponnelle's hyperactive stage magic set their luxury cast bounding around Salzburg's echoingly vast Felsenreitschule stage. Performance **** Picture & Sound **** --BBC Music Magazine,Feb'12

Jean-Pierre Ponelle's production with famous singers (e.g Peter Schreier, the early Edita Gruberova) from the big Felsenreitschule at the Salzburg Festival 1982 cannot be missed in any opera collection. I am glad to have the new Arthaus edition from 2010 as the earlier one was not available for long time. Technically the ORF-production is adequat to the standard of this time, the video direction of Brian Large is excellent - as usual.

Don't be misled by the new release date. Another version has been around for ages. The performance was given in 1982.
