Joseph Losey (1909-1984), director of such diverse films as The Servant (1963), Boom! (1968) and The Go-Between (1971), directed this internationally acclaimed film of Mozart's masterpiece, hailed by critics as the superior of even Ingmar Bergman's version of The Magic Flute (1974) in successfully meeting the demands of two art forms. Shot on location near Venice, the film called “sinister and sumptuous” by the New York Times, stars baritone Ruggero Raimondi as opera’s patron saint of toxic masculinity, with soprano Kiri TeKanawa as Donna Elvira, soprano Edda Moser as Donna Anna, and soprano Teresa Berganza as Zerlina.
This film is rated PG by the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA)
