DIE ZAUBERFLÖTE Blu-ray Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart Salzburg Festival, Salzburg, 1982 This production of Mozart's Zauberflöte received enormous and unanimous approval, when it was premiered in Salzburg. The Theatre wizard Jean-Pierre Ponnellecreated a staging which became part and parcel of the festival programme for over nine years and soon acquired the status of a legend. Of course, none of that would have had the same appeal if it had not been in accord with Mozart's music, performed with perfect blend of lightness and pathos, humour and profundity, by James Levine and the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra; nor would it all have worked without a truly Festival-worthy cast of singers: the Finnish bass Martti Talvela, who departed way too soon in 1989, in his famous role as Sarastro, the incomparable Edita Gruberová as "the best-ever Queen of the Night" (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung), the legendary Tamino Peter Schreier as well as the petite, lyrical soprano Ileana Cotrubas˛ as Pamina. Further, Christian Boesch, who sang the role of his life with Papageno, was credited most for his performance in this legendary Zauberflöte. Soloists: Christian Boesch (Papageno), Martti Talvela (Sarastro), Peter Schreier (Tamino), Edita Gruberová (Königin der Nacht), Ileana Cotrubas (Pamina), Edda Moser (Erste Dame), Ann Murray (Zweite Dame), Ingrid Mayr (Dritte Dame) Orchestra, Chorus: Wiener Philharmoniker, Konzertvereinigung Wiener Staatsopernchor Conductor: James Leivine Director: Jean-Pierre Ponnelle Performance Place: Salzburg Festival, Salzburg
