Ingmar Bergman's version of Mozart's The Magic Flute isn't his most cinematic work - it's a film version of an opera and was originally shown on Swedish TV. Nonetheless, there are elements here which echo his other films.

If filmed opera seems a contradiction -- no more than an excuse to immortalize a performance -- this production is the exception to the rule.
