Session #6: Operatic Music in Movies – Soundtracks

Tuesday, August 11th, 7:30 PM NY Time 

Operatic music has been a mainstay of film soundtracks since the beginning – even predating sound in film. What are we being told when we hear opera in movies? Why does it seem that German Opera = WAR and Italian Opera = civil and sexual disorder in movies? And so what does French Opera =?

Special Guests: Isabel Leonard & Alex Ross

Films discussed include Un chien andalou (Buñuel); Apocalypse Now (Coppola); The Hunger (Scott); The Godfather, Part III (Coppola); The Fifth Element (Besson); La vita è bella (Benigni)
