Product Description

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 does truly reign as the Queen of the Night. Bernarda Bobro has charm as Pamina, and Daniel Schmutzhard's Papageno relishes all the physical possibilities of the staging.' --John Allison, Opera, June 2014

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic! It's not only the spectacle of the great ... 11 April 2016
By Vicki Moore, M.M. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Fantastic! It's not only the spectacle of the great production on Lake Constance, but also the great direction with blocking, using the space well. The singing is spot on. Lighting design is fantastic; video direction is great. The viewer enjoys terrific performances from each major (and minor) character, especially when you consider that they must not be afraid of heights, or lying down while they sing! In addition, the gals who sing the trios are spot on: their voices are well matched so that the trio singing is beautifully balanced. I don't know German fluently, but I know enough as a singer that their diction is accurate; I have a feeling that those in the audience, who are probably mostly German speakers, fully understood both the dialogue and also singing. The famous "Queen of the Night aria" is very exciting, while she sings about 100 feet over the lake. She has guts! I agree with former reviewers that the singer for the "bad guy," Soroaster, does tend to "sing in the back" of his throat; but, frankly, this does not affect the production. This is totally fun! Great costuming; fantastic puppet design and work! I am in awe of the engineering that this production required. Mozart's fairy tale is beautifully done within the context of post-modern creativity! We are not shown on the video where the orchestra is, but members of the Vienna Phil are "top notch." Kudos to the conductor! I highly recommend this Blue Ray.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Production of old Favorite 4 Mar. 2014
By gt surber - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This production of the Magic Flute is well done. The singing is marvelous. The orchestra and conductor are beyond reproach. The staging on an island with a revolving top that rotates from forest to Temple is excellent imagery and well used.

The Women of the night and the Queen of the Night costumes are fantastical and wonderful. The white garb of the prince is simple and beautiful. The priests are imaginatively outfitted. Papageno is somewhat out of place in modern, cheap, yellow cut off sweat pants, poorly fitting zippered sweat shirt, t shirt, and baseball cap, but the outfit does make him a "common man" in the middle of aristocracy. Papagena's change from old lady to cheerleader complete with the pompoms is a little unsettling, but mates her with Papageno.

This production emphasizes the concept of love conquers all, whether aristocratic or plebeian. There was very little of the feminism I have seen in other productions.
