Mozart's classic, fairytale opera, the Magic Flute, is stunningly performed
at the Zurich Opera House.
Welser-M?st ensures that orchestra moves through the work with a flexibility
and gentleness that keeps the music light and theatrical.
Jonathon Miller's stage production captures all the magic of Egypt, a land
of handsome princes, demonic queens, evil abductors, serpents and supernatural
Elena Mosuc is an electrifyingly powerful Queen of the Night. Both technically
and musically gifted this is a wonderful sight. The Queen's three ladies are
beautifully clear and blend as they should, as do the three boys (an obvious
advantage of the DVD format).
EXTRA FEATURES include scenes from other titles in the TDK catalogue.
