Giv Cornfield
The New Recordings, Cliffs Classics, November 2007

A Paris National Opera production of The Magic Flute in German sounds like an unlikely prospect, yet the stage settings are beautifully rich and imaginative, as are the costumes. Dorothea Roeschmann as Pamina is outstanding; Detlef Roth and Gaele Le Roi as Papageno and Papagena, respectively, also turn in sparkling performances, but the rest of the cast I did not find all that impressive, superb audio quality and first-rate cinematography notwithstanding. A recent version, also on TDK (DVWWW -OPMFC) is "Die Zauberfloete fuer Kinder".
