Mozart Babes

Kenneth Branagh has picked three of our "hottest" talents for his Magic Flute film. René Pape (left) will play Sarastro, Joseph Kaiser (center) will be Tamino, and Ben Davis (right) will be Papageno. Because the Queen of the Night has been cast (Lyubov Petrova), Sieglinde shall try out instead for Erste Dame, or at least for the Zweiter Knabe. Or even towel boy. Anything.
