Zauberflöte lacks mysticism and magic
11 May 13 / Seen and Heard
This Die Zauberflöte may be fielding its ‘Cast B’, but it’s an ‘A’ team even so
6 May 13 / What's on Stage
The Royal Opera honours Sir Colin Davis with The Magic Flute
1 May 13 / Musical Criticism
With such a cast, McVicar's Flute really is Magic
25 Apr 13 / Express
A very strongly cast and thoroughly enjoyable revival.
23 Apr 13 / Opera Britannia
Is there a more crowd-pleasing opera than The Magic Flute?
23 Apr 13 / Telegraph
A fitting operatic memorial to Sir Colin Davis
20 Apr 13 / Seen and Heard
The highest accolades go to Albina Shagimuratova as the Queen of the Night
19 Apr 13 / Music OMH
Though musically strong and often visually arresting it is not quite a coherent whole
18 Apr 13 / Classical Source
Altogether, it’s a fine revival
18 Apr 13 / What's on Stage
It’s comic, grand and glittering, with great performances all round
18 Apr 13 / Londonist
Swift and energetic
18 Apr 13 / The Guardian
