Session #3: Opera Genres in Film (Part1) – Expressionism, Romanticism, Nationalism
Thursday, August 6th, 7:30 PM NY Time
The greatest directors have – wittingly or not – adapted techniques from opera in telling their stories… beyond the use of music (although that too, certainly) and into how characters and settings are presented. How do various genres play out in both opera and film?
Films discussed include: Top Hat (Sandrich); Alexander Nevsky (Eisenstein); Triumph of the Will (Riefenstahl); Psycho (Hitchcock); Star Wars (any and all, Lucas et al.)
