Many movies share the same sources as some of the most iconic operas. In fact, many movies seem to be reclaiming the story from the opera that helped make it famous. Is a movie “truer” than an opera in some way? And how can we talk about “truth” in either of these narrative forms?
Films discussed include: Die Nibelungen (Lang); Camille (Cukor); Tosca (Renoir); Phantom of the Paradise (De Palma); Carmen (Gades); First Name: Carmen (Godard); Carmen, a HipHopera (Townsend)
