Legendary Zauberflöte staged by the famous director Jean-Pierre Ponnelle
This production of Mozartâs ZauberflÃ¶te received enormous and unanimous approval, when it was premiered in Salzburg. The Theatre wizard Jean-Pierre Ponnelle created 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 Mozartâs music, performed with perfect blend of lightness and pathos, humour and profundity, by Levine, James 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 GruberovÃ¡ as the best-ever Queen of the Nightâ (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung), the legendary Tamino Peter Schreier as well as the petite, lyrical soprano Ileana CotrubasË as Pamina. Further, Christian Boesch, who sang the role of his life with Papageno, was credited most for his performance in this legendary ZauberflÃ¶te.
