Mozart’s last opera receives big-screen treatment in this specially conceived version by director Kenneth Branagh, with English translation by Stephen Fry. International opera superstars René Pape (Sarastro) and Lyubov Petrova (Queen of the Night) are joined by newcomers Joseph Kaiser and Amy Carson along with a supporting cast of goodies and baddies. Set in World War I, the film maintains the opera fairy-tale feel and the setting is evoked to poignant effect. Comedy, tragedy and final redemption come together in this popular opera.
‘A genial and good-natured production with much spectacle and entertainment to offer.’
Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
