Opera on the Silver Screen: Movies and Metaphors
Event Start Date: 12/6/2020 1:30 PM
Event End Date: 12/6/2020 3:00 PM
Many opera fans and sympathetic film enthusiasts have found a symbiotic relationship between the two art forms. The blend of both can be an emotional, exciting and, yes, at times, very funny experience.
This presentation features a brief retrospective of operatic silent (!) films and the operatic personalities who made a successful, if bumpy, transition to the Hollywood sound stage. We will finish with movie excerpts that use opera as a metaphor for a film’s emotional theme.
So grab a box of popcorn and your favorite beverage, find a comfortable seat and enjoy the show!
