New "Magic Flute" - anyone seen it, want to comment?

I've just been to see the new Kenneth Branagh/Stephen Fry Magic Flute. While I think ultimately there was quite a lot that didn't work, and some downright silly ideas, I found it an interesting, thoughtprovoking and brave take on a difficult opera. Comparisons and contrasts with Bergman's Trollflojten were inevitable also.

Anyone else seen it? Got any thoughts?

Rolfe.
