Review: The Berlin Philharmonic delivered a concert performance of Mozart’s “Die Zauberflöte” April 7, simultaneously broadcast in Europe, that seemed to waft in like a spring breeze. The concert’s now being edited for streaming to internet audiences via the Philharmonic’s Digital Concert Hall, and there’s much to recommend it, including a delightful Papageno new to American opera lovers and a sneak peek at a Queen of the Night who makes her Met debut in 2014. Above all, front and center, was an orchestra such as you will rarely hear in an opera pit. ★★★★
