The Screen Guide

Documentary celebrating the Australian Opera's 1991 Mozart cycle, part of the world-wide celebrations to mark the bicentenary of the death of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. The program presents excerpts from the company's four Mozart productions (The Magic Flute, Cosi Fan Tutte, Don Giovanni and La Clemenza di Tito) which all owe their inspiration to the young Swedish theatre director Goran Jarvefelt, who died tragically in 1989, and his collaborator, designer Carl Freidrich Oberle. The program also features interviews with a number of the company's young principal singers, the conductors, and the directors who have realised Jarvefelt's production for the Australian stage.
