Trivia

One of the people shown repeatedly during the overture is Alootook Ipeelie, one of Canada's best-known Inuit artists and poets. Ipeelie was attending a meeting of the International Inuit Circumpolar Conference in Stockholm during the production, and was picked off the street because of his unusual features. See more »

Homage of the Master to the Opera and Theater
28 February 2006 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

The Queen of the Night (Birgit Nordin) offers his daughter Pamina (Irma Urrila) to Tamino (Josef Köstlinger), but he has to bring her back from her father and priest Sarastro (Ulrik Cold). She gives a magic flute to Tamino and magic bells to the bird hunter Papageno (Håkan Hagegård), who follows Tamino and wants to find a wife. The duo travels in a journey of love and knowledge.

Ingmar Bergman's adaptation of the last opera of Mozart to the cinema is a homage of the master to the opera and theater. Sang in Swedish and divided in three parts, Bergman shows faces of the audience in the overture (I particularly did not like this part); the first act; the intermission, showing the backstage; and the second and last act. The cast in general is very beautiful, highlighting the singer Irma Urrila. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "A Flauta Mágica" ("The Magic Flute")
