Opera and Film: Fellini and Italian Neorealist Cinema
Diana Martinez, PhD, Film Streams
Dan Rigazzi, Pagliacci Director
Italian neorealist cinema and verismo opera share many common themes. Join us as we uncover these connections and influences between the art forms, including how Opera Omaha’s upcoming production of Pagliacci takes inspiration from Fellini’s masterpiece La Strada.
Opera in Conversation features three sessions in advance of each production featuring artists, scholars, and other public figures that foster cross-disciplinary explorations of artists, big questions, and concepts in Opera Omaha’s mainstage productions.
