Notes and Editorial Reviews

Die Zauberflöte is the sixth installment in DG’s Grammy-nominated Mozart opera series. Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung praised Villazón’s “comic talent” in his first Papageno, “achieving ‘heights of emotion’ with the captivating Regula Mühlemann’s Papagena,” as well as the “magical tenor” of Klaus Florian Vogt as Tamino, Christiane Karg’s “lyrically perfect Pamina” and the “imposing” Franz-Josef Selig’s Sarastro, all under the baton of “genuine Mozartian” Yannick Nézet-Séguin.
