Karl Böhm's direction of Mozart's comic masterpiece was the celebrated highlight of the Salzburg Festival in 1966. With its new décor and costumes by Rudolf Heinrich, along with a new, young cast of singers, the production became the 'standard for Mozart'.

In the title role is Walter Berry, one of the twentieth century's most beloved bass-baritone singers, equally at home in Wagner, Strauss and Mozart, though perhaps never more so than in the roles provided by his eighteenth-century compatriot. "Berry is a delightfully naive, unaffected, charming Hanswurst of a Papageno, … his speech projected with engaging freshness and point. His singing … is as naturally phrased as one could wish." Gramophone on Mozart: The Magic Flute

Karl Böhm's unsurpassable direction yields nothing when it comes to handling big ensembles; and his devotion to the music of Mozart is palpable. No one else knows how to conduct this overwhelming music as an entity, so full of contrasts yet at the same time held tightly together.
