Magical Magic Flute,
This review is from: Mozart: Die Zauberflote (The Magic Flute) -- Metropolitan Opera/Levine [DVD] [NTSC]  (DVD)
AMAZING. The SETS: excellent - schematic, evocative and inventive - you actually SEE Tamino and Pamina going through fire and water, for example. The CAST: extraordinary - a really funny Papageno, a wonderful Pamina (Kathleen Battle is utterly credible - which is saying a lot for a fantasy - I'd die for her at the drop of a hat!!!) and as for Kurt Moll, WOW! His is the first performance I've ever seen that squares with Bernard Shaw's opinion that if God listened to music, Sarastro's music is the music he'd listen to!!!! James Levine's conducting is superb, and his friendly, understated style just brings everything home. BUY THIS, and bless me for my advice!!!

Your review on Mozart's The Magic Flute was very helpful for me. Thank you. What is your opinion on the sound tracks? Is the audio music Dolby 5.1 or DTS 5.1 or only stereo?

I am so sorry not to have anwered your question before - I don't usually visit these pages, and only saw it yesterday - I guess you've found the answer by now... but if not, the audio is PCM Stereo. Better late than never. Salut!
