Glyndebourne's 1978 production of Mozart's Zauberflote received as much critical acclaim for the imaginative David Hockney sets as for the operatic performance. Hockney, known internationally for his pop art, emphasised the magical and mystical qualities of one of Mozart's best known operas, and the spirit was reflected in John Cox's production.

Mozart's tale of Papageno and Prince Tamino's quest to rescue Pamina and overthrow the Queen of the Night is one of his best loved and here receives a stellar treatment with Leo Goeke, Felicity Lott and Benjamin Luxon in the lead roles, and Bernard Haitink conducting.

Please note that Die Zauberflote will be one of the featured operas of Glyndebourne's 2004 Festival (20 May - 29 August).
