We are all familiar with Mozart's Magic Flute to the libretto by Emanuel Schikaneder. What is far less well known, however, is the fact that Schikaneder wrote a sequel to The Magic Flute. In the year that marks the 200th anniversary of Emanuel Schikaneder's death, the Salzburg Festival presents this operatic rarity at the city's Residenzhof in the form of a glittering fairy-tale opera in which magic and ghostly events play a decisive role. Ivor Bolton conducts his Salzburg Mozarteum Orchestra energetically, smoothly and elegantly, bringing out the best in Winter's charming music with its cleverly interwoven echoes of Mozart.
