Relaxed screening

The Magic Flute
+ intro and discussion
Bergman and Mozart make perfect bedfellows in the Swedish filmmaker’s resplendent take on the Austrian composer’s opera.

Monday 20 May 2024 18:00


Ingmar Bergman


Josef Köstlinger, Irma Urrila, Håkan Hagegård, Elisabeth Eriksson

Sweden 1975. 135min




English subtitles

Originally produced for television, Ingmar Bergman’s rendering of Mozart’s beloved opera is a cinematic spectacle. The film blurs the boundaries of theatre, between audience and stage, as Tamino ventures with his fantastical instrument to rescue Pamina and vanquish the Queen of the Night. Join us after the screening to reflect on the nature of performativity, escapism, and neurodivergence.

The screening and discussion are hosted by film critic and writer Lillian Crawford.

Relaxed screenings are presented each month for neurodivergent audiences, with their companions and assistants. More detailed information can be found at

Tickets £3.
