  • In 2006, the Mozart22 project took place in honor of the 250 th anniversary of the composer's birth. It was a major project to recreate the twenty-two operas and oratorios composed by Mozart. This documentary goes behind the scenes of the production of Ascanio in Alba at that time. The Salzburg Festival of 2006 gathered the best specialists of the Mozart repertoire - singers, conductors and directors - to interpret this unique selection of works. This documentary shows us behind the scenes of the staging of Pierre Audi. Selected excerpts from the opera and interviews of the conductor (Riccardo Mutti), and performers (Diana Damrau, René Pape, Christian Gerhaher, Irena Baspalovaite), reveal and illuminate this beautiful interpretation of the enchanted flute.


  • Narrated principally in German, with some English; sung in German.
