Mozart: Die Zauberflote

 (2011)

Mozart: Die Zauberflote Blu-ray offers solid video and superb audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

From the Queen of the Night's vocal pyrotechnics to Papageno's chirpy birdsongs, The Magic Flute is one of Mozart's most charming and engaging operas. However, its fairytale surface conceals the mysteries of an initiation ritual and a multi-layered plot, packed with allegories to fire up the imagination. This celebrated production by artist William Kentridge joyfully bursts onto the stage of Teatro alla Scala in Milan, featuring the dazzling Russian coloratura Albina Shagimuratova as the Queen of the Night, and Italian bass Alex Esposito as Papageno, one of the most sought after artists of his generation.

For more about Mozart: Die Zauberflote and the Mozart: Die Zauberflote Blu-ray release, see Mozart: Die Zauberflote Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.5 out of 5.

Mozart: Die Zauberflote Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Die Zauberflöte is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Opus Arte with an AVC encoded 1080i transfer in 1.78:1. This is a weirdly bifurcated high definition presentation that has both pluses and minuses. On the plus side, the production design itself is lovely, with sumptuous costumes and some intriguing projections. On the minus side, the overall image quality here is on the soft side and is also hampered by Kentridge's preference for a mostly dark stage, which leads to murky shadow detail and outright crush at times. The television director Patrizia Carmine also has a tendency to prefer midrange shots, which add to the overall softness factor. When close-ups do finally occur, the uptick in sharpness and clarity is quite noticeable, with some great fine detail, excellently saturated color and nicely variegated contrast.


Mozart: Die Zauberflote Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Die Zauberflöte has two appealing audio mixes, a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 mix and an LPCM 2.0 stereo fold down. Fidelity is exceptionally clear and precise, with very good balance between the singers, the ensemble and the orchestra. The vaunted hall ambience of La Scala is perfectly captured in the DTS mix, with a nice spaciousness and breathing room. Dynamic range is quite good, especially with regard to the orchestra which exploits some dramatic changes in volume. Both of these options do reveal some of the very slight thinness in Shagimuratova's most extreme high register, something that certainly should be understandable considering the extreme ambitus of her role.
