About the Film:

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. An Opera in Two Acts. Sung in English. 134 mins.

Director Kenneth Branagh works his film magic on Mozart’s The Magic Flute, with a newly adapted libretto by the British actor, comedian and writer Stephen Fry. Breathtakingly transformed, this new film version pairs musical director James Conlon with the Chamber Orchestra of Europe, and showcases opera stars René Pape, Tom Randle, Lyubov Petrova, Silvia Moi, Joseph Kaiser and Amy Carson in a romantic adventure story of humanity and fellowship, high drama with comedy. A perennial favorite for generations of opera-goers, this production is a visually extraordinary cinematic experience that the LA Times called “exuberant!”
