Product description

Product Description

The internationally renowned Mozart interpreter Sir Colin Davis conducts the chorus and orchestra of the Royal Opera House and a glittering cast in David McVicar's 2003 production of Mozart's last opera recorded, in sumptuous surround sound, live at Covent Garden. Recorded in High Definition.

Press Reviews

"This production's slow journey from darkness into the light…works well on the small screen, not least thanks to high-definition camera work and Sue Judd's inspired direction for television. The real magic, though, is supplied by the onstage cast...In Dorothea Röschmann's hands, Pamina emerges not so much a powerless victim of Fate but more as a passionate woman prepared to suffer in the nameof love. Her natural command of the stage is sagely employed by McVicar...Diana Damrau's supremely sung Queen of the Night oozes class, while Simon Keenlyside's profoundly human, touchingly sympathetic view of Papageno deserves an Olivier Award." (Classic fM)
"...a mellow warmth that was deeply satisfying. Simon Keenlyside...a triumph as quite the most engaging Papageno I have ever encountered...With an exceptional Queen of the Night, Diana Damrou, this is an evening no Mozart lover should miss..." (The Mail on Sunday)

Review

The Magic Flute in the 2003 Covent Garden production has an excellent cast... The acting, particularly Simon Keenlyside s Papageno, is admirable and the extra dialogue on DVD adds to the roundedness of the characters. Sir Colin Davis is a wonderful Mozartian and for less than a quarter of the price of a decent seat this set makes the most sublime pantomime of all for Christmas. --Classical Record Review

It is easy to underestimate the success of the ROH Die Zauberflote , so readily did the comedy flow in David McVicar s sensitive production under Colin Davis s benign direction. [Simon Keenlyside was] a triumph as quite the most engaging Papageno I have encountered, while the Tamino and Pamina of the German pair Will Hartmann and Dorothea Roschmann were stylish and musically satisfying ...an evening no Mozart lover should miss --The Mail on Sunday --This text refers to the Blu-ray edition.
