The Magic Flute [Trollflöjten]
Directed By: Ingmar Bergman
April 11, 1975 / Swedish / 138 mins
This scintillating screen version of Mozart’s beloved opera is one of the most exquisite opera films ever made. Bergman’s deep knowledge of music is on display in this celebration of love and forgiveness that expresses an appreciation for the artifice and spectacle of the theater.
