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 occurrences.

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.
