Mozart's The Magic Flute Story [DVD] [1994]

This disc captures a performance of Mozart's final opera, The Magic Flute. The DVD contains a standard full-frame transfer. The soundtrack is rendered in Dolby Digital Stereo. The opera itself is performed in the traditional German. While there are no subtitles or closed captions, an English soundtrack explains the story as it progresses. Supplemental materials include a short synopsis of the opera, as well a quick biography of the composer. This is a fine disc for opera or Mozart enthusiasts, and does a decent job of making the work accessible to those with little knowledge of opera.
