A perfect summer opera, Mozart's playful The Magic Flute is brought to joyous cinematic life through the talents of Bergman, an acclaimed organist and musicologist who once declared that he would have become a conductor if film had not claimed him first. Love triumphs over all, as a young man seeks to rescue a beautiful princess from the hands of an evil sorcerer.

Peter Cowie on The Magic Flute: "Bergman's film of The Magic Flute remains the finest screen version of an opera ever produced. Shot in sumptuous color by Sven Nykvist, and featuring some of the finest Nordic singers of the day, the film marks Bergman's overt tribute to classical music. Mozart's magic has been neither betrayed nor merely reproduced by Bergman, but rather filtered through the Swedish maestro's own metaphysical vision in a remarkable act of homage."
