Session #4: Opera Genres in Film (Part 2) – Verismo and the Supreme Masterpieces of Neoverismo

Saturday, August 8th, 5:00 PM NY Time 

Of all genres of opera, none are so misunderstood or derided in our time as Verismo (Mascagni, Puccini, et al.) – yet of all genres of film, none has produced a higher ratio of great cinema than Neoverismo, derived from the operatic prototypes. How did Puccini become Visconti, what happened in the transformation, and what does this tell us about the techniques of Realism in film today?

Special Guests: Quinn Kelsey & Michael Cooper

Films discussed include Roma città aperta (Rossellini); Ladri di biciclette (De Sica); La terra trema (Visconti); Le notti di Cabiria (Fellini); Accattone (Pasolini); Mamma Roma (Pasolini); Roma (Cuarón)
