Opera (1987)

Opera (1987, ITA) C-100m. ** D: Dario Argento. Starring Cristina Marsillach, Ian Charleson, Daria Nicolodi, Urbano Barberini, Michele Soavi. Muddled plot and impressive stylistics keep a balance in this horror opus about young opera singer who gets a break being allowed to sing in 'Macbeth', only to find herself pursued by an insane, black-gloved killer. Some very interesting set pieces make this film worth watching, especially for devotees of the director. Argento would make another opera-themed film in 1998 with IL FANTASMA DELL'OPERA. English title: TERROR AT THE OPERA. Original running time: 107m.
