Edit
Trivia The film was funded by the Peter Moores Foundation. This institution has backed a number of operatic recordings in English released on CD. Although this Magic Flute is the Foundation's first film, it is actually their second recording of the opera (the first was released on CD in 2005). The cast for the film is entirely new. See more »

Crazy Credits The overture to the opera is played both at the beginning and the end, but only at the end is it played over the film's credits. See more »
Quotes Papageno: [singing] A birdman's work is never done/ From crack of dawn to set of sun,/ In unrewarded servitude/ He labours to protect his brood. /I feed and train my chirping pets, /I lay down traps and cast out nets,/ I speak in fluent 'Pigeonese' /And charm the birds right off the trees.
