Notes and Editorial Reviews

Ingmar Bergman puts his indelible stamp on Mozart’s exquisite opera in this sublime rendering of one of the composer’s best-loved works: a celebration of love, forgiveness, and the brotherhood of man. The Magic Flute (Trollflöjten) stars Josef Köstlinger as Tamino, the young man determined to rescue a beautiful princess from the clutches of parental evil. Criterion’s edition features the film’s glorious soundtrack in the original stereo format.

The Magic Flute is presented in its original broadcast aspect ratio of 1.33:1. This digital transfer was created from a new 35mm low-contrast print and the 35mm stereo magnetic master audio track.

In Swedish with English subtitles.
