SPOTLIGHT ON INGMAR BERGMAN This scintillating screen version of Mozart’s beloved opera shows Ingmar Bergman’s deep knowledge of music and his gift for expressing it in filmic terms. Casting some of Europe’s finest soloists—among them Josef Köstlinger, Ulrik Cold, and Håkan Hagegård—the director lovingly recreated the baroque theater of the Drottningholm Palace in Stockholm to stage the story of the prince Tamino (Köstlinger) and his zestful sidekick Papageno (Hagegård), who seek to save a beautiful princess (Irma Urrila) from the clutches of evil. A celebration of love, forgiveness, and the brotherhood of man, The Magic Flute is considered by many to be the most exquisite opera film ever made. --Criterion Collection“An absolutely dazzling film entertainment, full of beauty, intelligence, wit, and fun.” New York Times“A marvel.” The GuardianCast Ulrik Cold, Josef Köstlinger, Irma Urrila
