About

On 23 March 2013, this internationally acclaimed opera production at the Festspielhaus not only opened the Berliner Philharmoniker’s first Easter Festival in Baden-Baden, celebrated by critics and audiences alike, but also marked the first live performance of The Magic Flute by the orchestra. The recording of the production is the fourth of the work by the Berliner Philharmoniker, following studio productions with Sir Thomas Beecham (1937/38), Karl Böhm (1964) and Herbert von Karajan (1980). With this production, Sir Simon Rattle conducted The Magic Flute for the first time.

"Let’s not forget what a raging masterpiece the Magic Flute is, and how different it was from anything anyone had done before – even Mozart" Sir Simon Rattle
