Entre bastidores (14 min)
This video provides an unusual and humorous insight into the world of music theatre. Sarah Willis, horn player with the Berliner Philharmoniker, leads the audience through the Festspielhaus in Baden-Baden during the dress rehearsal and premiere of Mozart’s Zauberflöte and chats with, among others, the stage designer, the prop manager, the chorus director and many other contributors both on and off stage. The popular opera was performed in 2013, when the Berliner Philharmoniker held their traditional Easter Festival in Baden-Baden for the first time. The festival, which was initiated by Herbert von Karajan, previously took place in Salzburg for many years.
