Overview

Mozart: Die Zauberflöte

The year's most eagerly anticipated opera recording has finally arrived: Mozart's Die Zauberflöte conducted by René Jacobs. The great Belgian maestro's previous Mozart opera recordings have won the industry's highest awards -- from Gramophone's Record of the Year to a 2004 Grammy Award for Le nozze di Figaro.

This new recording represents the culmination of Jacobs's Mozart opera series. After showing us a different way of looking at the Da Ponte trilogy and taking a profoundly innovative approach to the two great opere serie, Jacobs magically unifies the complex artistic and psychological aspects of Die Zauberflöte.

Scholar, artist, alchemist -- Jacobs fuses the opposing strands of Mozart's tale of light and dark, fire and water, the heavens and the earth, heroes and villains, and comedy and drama into a performance as enchanting as it is profound.

The set's luxury package includes a 314-page booklet with a full libretto in German, English, and French. From the Label
