Especially when "The Magic Flute" receives such a "spectacular and virtuosic staging" (Le Figaro) by American director Lydia Steier. Her colourful, fairy-tale production conjures up magical scenes and revolves around Hollywood star Klaus Maria Brandauer as grandfather, who reads the fantastical story of Tamino’s quest to his three grandchildren.

The Three Boys are sung "technically flawlessly and expressively by three members of the Wiener Sängerknaben, a pure joy" (Spiegel Online). Constantinos Carydis leads a young ensemble of world class singers and draws "precise phrasing and plenty of crisp articulation from the Wiener Philharmoniker" (Financial Times).

A delight already enjoyed by over one million TV viewers in Germany alone!
