A great production of the Magic Flute.

Mozart's Magic Flute. What else should be said? Many “simple people” consider it as one of the greatest opera… Well, I always find it… almost annoying.

A few days I watched a strange production of Magic Flute that I liked a lot and even more that one that made me to find a peace with this Mozart's work. The production is kind of mix of “Peter and Wolf” and NPR’s “A Prairie Home Companion”, salted with Mozart's tunes and teasingly sarcastic acting. Sine sarcasm is my second language I did enjoyed it tremendously.

The given recording was recorded by Australian Kostas Metaxas

and in low resolution format was kindly posted on his site:

Other Kostas's recordings are available as well:

Now, when those people do the same wonderful production of Richard Wagner's Der Ring des Nibelungen?
