Bergman’s adaptation of Mozart’s opera—the tale of a young man determined to rescue a beautiful princess from the clutches of evil shows off his virtuosity as a stage and musical director. Shot on a replica of an 18th-century Castle, Bergman shows off the working parts of the production. The film’s vivid music, intensely stylized art direction, and soaring voices have delighted both film and opera devotees.
