Mozart: Die Zauberflöte DVD (Concentus Musicus of Vienna)

For the first time ever at the Salzburg Festival, Mozart's Die Zauberflöte is performed on period instruments - Nikolaus Harnoncourtreturns to the composer's native city to conduct his famous Concentus Musicus Wien 'with precision and finesse'  (Financial Times), presenting 'much that is new, most of it fascinating, some of it astonding in its musical interpretation' (Kurier). A strong ensemble cast of some of today's finest young singers is led by Bernard Richter as Tamino and Julia Kleiter as Pamina; Markus Werb shines in the role of Papageno. The conflict between 'the world of light and rationality' and 'the world of night, of feelings, of imagination, of dreams' is at the heart of acclaimed theatre director Jens-Daniel Herzog's dramatic and captivating new production of Mozart's much-loved Singspiel.
