Here's a dazzling trailer of Mozart's "The Magic Flute" as you've never seen it. Unless you saw it at the Berlin Comic Opera, that is. And you'll be able to see it at Minnesota Opera next season. The projections make it look like Mozart meets Méliès (Georges Méliès, the experimental film maker memorialized in the movie "Hugo"). Toss in some Tim Burton too, along with William Kentridge,the Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, and the Brothers Quay. Spectacular!
