Die Zauberflöte, Revisited

The parody below got me to thinking. I have no attachment to the philosophical content of Mozart's Masonic opera, Die Zauberflöte, but it has to be one of the most tuneful operas ever written. And it gives beautiful young people with spectacularly good voices an opportunity to show off!

If you have 2-3 hours to spare, go enjoy Die Zauberflöte; you won't regret it.

(Full disclosure: yes, I do know and used to work with one person in the orchestra in this live performance. If that prejudices me, I think you'll agree if you watch the performance that he must be pretty good to be in that orchestra!)
