Product Description

From Bregenz Festival 17th July 2013. Staged by David Pountney (stagings for MET, Vienna State Opera, Bayerische Staatsoper Munich, Zurich Opera etc.)

Review

'The cast is captured well, not least the Tamino of Norman Reinhardt, impressive for the ringing heft of his voice. [...] Ana Durlovski sings with coloratura panache, showing that she truly does reign as the Queen of the Night. Bernarda Bobro has charm as Pamina, and Daniel Schmutzhard's Papageno relishes all the physical impossibilities of the staging.' --John Allison, Opera, June 2014

As a collector of Magic Flute DVD/Blu-ray operas (I now have 34), this has to be one of the best. I don't feel qualified to evaluate the singing, but for its fantastic set and costumes, I'd have to give this 6 stars out of 5. I also liked this being set out on the water. However, there were two problems for me. (So I took off a star.) With such elaborate costumes, how could they come up with such a dorky costume for Papageno. Everyone else is in an over-the-top costume, but Papageno is in a yellow hoodie and a green baseball hat. When he entered, he had a weird contraption on his head that he took off and never wore again. They could have done so much with feathers in his costume to make him look like a bird man, as so many other versions have done.

The other problem I had was the three "boys". It annoys me that they use women for these roles, although I have seen several versions with actual boys playing the parts. There are lots of trained young male voices who could do the parts - the Vienna Boys Choir seems to have no problem finding suitable voices. Also, the costumes of the "boys" had elaborate brassieres, hardly suitable attire for "boys".

If it were anywhere else and any other work, you might think that the production here was just a little bit over the top, but this is the floating lake stage in Bregenz and it's Mozart's The Magic Flute, so anything goes really. Set right in the waters of Lake Constance, the opera is performed on the domed back of a giant turtle that is surrounded by three huge dragons, but the stage itself is only half the spectacle. The overture, for example, shows the capture of Pamina, the Queen of the Night looking on horrified as Sarastro, Monostatos and his slaves transport her away on a boat that takes a circuit of the stage. The stage then erupts into life in the battle that ensues, fireworks flying, a serpent winding down the stage to inflate to enormous proportions as the dragon that attacks Prince Tamino. Elsewhere the domed stage revolves, one half sprouting giant inflatable blades of grass or spikes that create a forest and change colour according to the scene, the other half used mainly to create a podium or dais for the grandstanding of The Queen of the Night and for Sarastro.

Another significant feature of the David Pountney's production is the use of larger-than-life puppets for the three ladies (each operated by three puppeteers, reflecting the significance of this number in the work) and for the three boys, while the actual roles are sung off-stage (and all by female singers moreover). There are probably logistical reasons for this, although the stage is accommodating enough for all sorts of activity and numbers of extras and acrobats. If it allows the singers to concentrate on the singing however, well then that's also a benefit, but primarily such decisions appear to be taken for the sake of magic, spectacle and sheer scale.
