A solid production, with excellent playing and singing
on 31 December 2006
I have seen many productions of the Magic Flute (ranging from live performances to opera DVDs and Ingmar Bergman's film classic). To me this Levine conducted version is a good solid example of a reliable performance with well-judged tempi and good quality DVD sound and vision production. All singers are excellent and Kathleen Battle is particularly superb as Pamina.
