For the first time ever at the Salzburg Festival, Mozart’s Die Zauberflöte is performed on period instruments – Nikolaus Harnoncourt returns to the composer’s native city to conduct his famous Concentus Musicus Wien. A strong ensemble cast of some of today’s finest young singers is led by Bernard Richter as Tamino and Julia Kleiter as Pamina; Markus Werba shines in the role of Papageno. The conflict between “the world of light and rationality” and “the world of night, of feelings, of imagination, of dreams” is at the heart of acclaimed theatre director Jens-Daniel Herzog’s dramatic and captivating new production of Mozart’s much-loved Singspiel.
