Trial by Fire

The idea of a trial by fire has captured human imagination from mythic days.  This excerpt from Mozart’s Die Zauberflote (The Magic Flute) shows Tamino and his love Pamina undergoing trials by fire and water.  While I advise not attending too closely to the campy costumes, the music is lovely and the special effects are spectacular.
