Bel Canto fanNovember 4, 2012By Perry S. (New Plymouth, -)See All My Reviews"This is only the third production of Die Zauberflote that I have seen and they have all been quite different. This is probably the earliest one (1983) and probably quite conventional. There is some great acting and the voices are very good. I found it a bonus to see some well known names in the early days of their careers. For what must have been a VHS taped opera, the picture is distinctly better than the usual and no problems with the sound. For anyone who likes to see an opera as it was written, this can be recommended."Report Abuse
