The Magic Flute (U)

When: 7th May 2018

Ingmar Bergman will be remembered as one of the great European filmmakers of the 20th Century. His world view strikes many as bleak and pessimistic. So when he made a version of Mozart’s comic opera in 1976 many were surprised, and delighted. This is more than a film of a staged production – it’s something more ambitious than the opera live screenings we have become used to. We screen The Magic Flute, just rereleased by the British Film Institute, to mark the centenary of Bergman’s birth.

Duration: 135 mins

Entry / Cost:  £7 (Children £5)

Duration: 98 mins
