In this scene Johan and Alma are seen entering the castle of the landlord to watch a play. The lighting begins rather ominously with a relatively high contrast. It seems like Bergman used a relatively soft key light and no fill whatsoever. This makes the characters look very ominous and no one in this scene is fully illuminated except the host, who looks evil to no ends. Then as if it is not dark enough they turn down the lights diagetically to have all the faces in pure shadow.
