The Paris Opera comes to the library

Posted on: August 19, 2018

Film Movement is taking us to the opera in their film this month. The Murphy Library is showing the documentary, The Paris Opera, this Thursday at 6 p.m., which means we also get to visit Paris in the autumn of 2015. Running time is 110 minutes and the film is not rated but may be suitable for high school students. In French with English subtitles.

Stéphane Lissner is the new director of the Paris Opera and is preparing for his first press conference.   The backstage crew and artists work toward the first performance in the new season, although a few problems get in the way. Meanwhile a young singer studies at the opera’s academy, unaware that one day he will be called upon to save the day.

The most heartfelt part of the film is the terrorist attack on Paris when the city goes into mourning.   The opera company is under extreme pressure but they continue their struggle to unite themselves and their city.

Film Movement allows us to advertise and show their films one time in public. Then it goes into the library’s collection for anyone to borrow.   Call 837-2417.
