A very good version of The Magic Flute

Diana Damrau sings as an angel and as a devil at once. She scares Pamina so much that the poor girl actually shudders when Diana touches her. She radiates megawatts of strength. Truly outstanding.

Papageno and Pamina are good enough. Maybe Monostatos overacts the comic side of the role. Sarastro, who happens to be my favorite character, is not a match to the Queen of Night. Pamino and Papagena are, well, I have not fully made my mind on them.

I'd give top scores to the orchestra and direction. Costumes: good enough, some are a bit too modern. Sarastro ought to look like a priest, but doesn't.

A superb performance. You will want to watch it again and again. Don't allow Diana to sing out real loud, she might break some glasses.
