威廉·肯特里奇 2003 年的电影《长笛课》与他绝大多数以歌剧为主题的作品相似,同样呈现为一种视觉上的准备过程。这部影片中讲述了莫扎特的歌剧《魔笛》,它于 2005 年首次在比 利时皇家歌剧院上演。《长笛课》是典型的肯特里奇作品,利用纸上的炭笔画、随后擦除的过 程以及定格动画来讲述故事。拍摄《长笛课》“是为了寻找歌剧的视觉语言,”肯特里奇写道: “它的形式,以及画面中的黑板是给定的,但是白纸上的炭笔画呈现在胶片的正片和底片上时, 却表现出了黑板上粉笔画的效果,而这就属于我的探索。”  As with most of William Kentridge’s opera themed works, the 2003 film Learning the Flute was visual preparation. In this case, the production was Mozart’s The Magic Flute, which premiered in 2005 at the Royal Opera House in Belgium. The film is characteristically Kentridge, using charcoal drawings on paper, subsequent erasures, and stop-motion animation to tell a story. Learning the Flute “was made to find the visual language for the opera,” writes Kentridge. “The form, the blackboard, was the given; the photographic positive and negative of the black drawing on white paper, reversed to produce white chalk drawings on the blackboard, was the discovery.”   Learning the Flute, 2003, 35mm film transferred to video, blackboard, easel, 8 minutes, 2 seconds, Blackboard: 63×51-1/4 in. / 160×130cm, Easel: 74-7/8×27-1/2 in./190×70, Courtesy: Marian Goodman Gallery, New York 《学长笛》, 2003年,35毫米电影转成录像,8分钟2秒,John Berens版权所有,艺术家和Marian Goodman画廊提供图片
