Pittsburgh Opera Film Series: a partnership with Pittsburgh Filmmakers
Subscribers receive exclusive priority access to our popular Film Series, held on selected dates during the season. Pittsburgh Opera and Pittsburgh Filmmakers collaborate to choose films that pair with the current season's operas...sometimes in surprising ways!
Our film pairing for The Marriage of Figaro is Amadeus (The Director's Cut)
Directed by Milos Forman, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (Tom Hulce) is a remarkably talented young Viennese composer who unwittingly finds a fierce rival in the disciplined and determined Antonio Salieri (F. Murray Abraham). Resenting Mozart for both his hedonistic lifestyle and his undeniable talent, the highly religious Salieri is gradually consumed by his jealousy and becomes obsessed with Mozart's downfall, leading to a devious scheme that has dire consequences for both men. Watch the trailer.
