So many stage operas now pop up on our screens as live broadcasts – New York’s Met operas seem to be in constant rotation – that it’s easy to forget that this is nothing new. Even back in the sixties directors were mixing up the world of stage and screen, making beautifully arranged movies, rather than just bunging a camera in the orchestra pit. And perhaps the greatest of all the filmed operas is that meeting of masters: Bergman’s version of Mozart’s The Magic Flute. Elegant, playful and blessed with some wonderful voices this is a time-travelling delight. And it’s coupled with a rare chance to catch another lesser-known Bergman film, Summer With Moniker, telling the story of a passionate teenage affair.
