Using the opera's timeless whimsy and inventiveness, the movie replicates a performance on the stage that is so good that it almost makes you forget the participants' ABBA-like hairstyles.

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