This live recording of a 1983 performance from the Bayerische Staatsoper brings to life one of the most popular operas in a wonderful staging by August Everding

"Don't miss the seriousness, and don't forget the humor" - a mantra that sums up Everding's approach this unique Zauberflöte, in which Everding proves himself to be the true master of his profession

Edita Gruberova, the most sought-after Queen of the Night of our time, joins Francisco Ariza (Tamino) and conductor Wolfgang Sawallisch in leading an all-star cast that makes this performance a feast for the eyes and ears

"This charming production features Lucia Popp's still glorious Pamina and Moll's resonant Sarastro heading a first-rate cast. Brendel's Papageno lightens the recommendation." (BBC Music)

"Sawallisch's 1983 Bavarian account of Die Zauberflöte is outstanding in every way and will be difficult to surpass...Sawallisch conducts with inspirationally relaxed timing and gives the performance a natural, spontaneous flow. Vivid recording completes a superb set." (Penguin Guide)
