The Merola Opera Program of San Francisco brings great opera and opera related films to you with Merola Goes to the Movies. Each screening not only shows you acclaimed performances, but gives you a chance to talk and learn more about the world of opera.
On Saturday, March 29th at 1 pm in the Koret Auditorium of the SF Library Main Branch, join us for a free screening of Ingmar Bergman's 1975 classic version of Mozart's The Magic Flute. One of the world's most beloved operas, Mozart’s work is set in a mythical land between the sun and the moon, this whimsical opera features creatures, queens, and a magical flute in a celebration of love. In Swedish with English subtitles.
Before the screening, there will be a short talk about the making of the film by an Merola Opera representitive.
At the screening, guests are welcome to enter a free drawing to win Merola Opera Program prizes.
