Taking us into the high-stakes opera world of Parma, Italy, this long-lost documentary follows a tumultuous production of Verdi’s Luisa Miller as the cast prepares to face the city’s notoriously demanding audience. Coupled with a multimedia presentation by journalist and filmmaker August Ventura (who rescued the film), this 90-minute program will include history, anecdotes, live and filmed interviews, and even a sing-along, paying tribute to the power of opera and Verdi’s enduring brilliance.
