Opera and the Movies. TDO launches lecture and movie screening with Angelika Film Centers.
A mention of the opera
doesn't usually bring movies to mind. But then again, movies and opera
are linked (more often than you might think) through the medium of
The Dallas Opera and Angelika Film Centers invite you to explore that link by attending our very first Film and Lecture Series.
We'll kick things off with the BBC production of "Flashmob: The Opera," the story of a football fanatic who must choose between going to a game and helping his fiancée plan their wedding. "Flashmob," filmed live in London, is set to the music of many of the world's most popular operas, including Madame Butterfly, Don Giovanni and La traviata. This extraordinary event features cheeky new lyrics that fit the action.
The Dallas Opera/Angelika Film Centers Film and Lecture Series continues with:
"Raging Bull," in which the dramatic climax occurs at Cavalleria rusticana, the first production of the 2005-06 season at The Dallas Opera.
"Moulin Rouge," which includes Jaques Offenbach's famous "Can-Can." Offenbach is the man behind The Tales of Hoffmann, and this film contains excerpts from several of his delightful operettas.
"Amadeus," which includes portions of The Magic Flute, just in time to begin the celebration of Mozart's 250th birthday year!
The Dallas Opera/Angelika Film Centers Film and Lecture Series opens Monday, September 19th at the Plano location and runs throughout our 2005-06 season.
All screenings begin at 7:00 pm and will alternate between the
Angelika's Mockingbird Station and Plano locations. Stay tuned to
upcoming newsletters for schedules and additional information. Read full story.
