WEA Film Study Day –
Opera and Cinema

Tutor: Michael Pyke

This day school will explore the relationship between opera and cinema, with particular emphasis upon the relatively rare phenomenon of opera as feature film but also including a look at the various ways in which directors have used opera as both sound track and mise en scène in conventional cinema.

The morning session will be illustrated by excerpts from Carmen (Cecil B. DeMille, 1915), The Tales of Hoffmann (Michael Powell, 1950), Carmen (Francesco Rosi, 1984) and Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk (Petr Weigl, 1992).

In the afternoon there will be a full showing of The Magic Flute (Ingmar Bergman, 1975) with introduction and a concluding Q and A session.

Refreshments will be available.

In collaboration with The Market Theatre Film Club.
