The Met Live in HD: Die Zauberflöte (Mozart)

Die Zauberflöte (Mozart) – New Production


In his Live in HD debut, renowned maestro Gustavo Dudamel conducts English director Simon McBurney’s insightful new staging, declared “the best production I’ve ever witnessed of Mozart’s opera” by The Wall Street Journal. Key to McBurney’s interpretation is a torrent of rich theatrical flourishes—a raised pit rendering the Met Orchestra visible to the audience, ghostly projections, acrobatics—as well as a brilliant cast of leading Mozarteans. Tenor Stanislas de Barbeyrac portrays the intrepid prince Tamino, opposite soprano Christiane Karg as Pamina, the daughter of the vengeful Queen of the Night, sung by soprano Kathryn Lewek. Rounding out the cast are baritone Thomas Oliemans in his Met debut as the bird catcher Papageno and bass Stephen Milling as the high priest Sarastro.

Tentative Run Time: 3:30


Gustavo Dudamel (Conductor); Christiane Karg (Pamina), Kathryn Lewek (Queen of the Night), Stanislas de Barbeyrac (Tamino), Thomas Oliemans (Papageno), Christian Van Horn (Speaker), Stephen Milling (Sarastro)
