Ever seen opera productions and think, Hey, this would look great on screen! Many directors have had same thoughts and many have produced many wonderful opera films. Opera on screen seems a bit odd. They are not actually singing, so the movie may have a few downsides to it. For example, it has always bugged me when actors, (who are not singers), don't open their mouths enough when there is a high note. I know that it's a stupid thing to care about but it's the little things that matter the most.
Any operatic movies you know that you would like to discuss?
