Opera

Italy, 1973 (MIFF 1974)

Director: Bruno Bozzetto, Guido Manuli

An animated short, made of many crazy gags, tied by a common theme —music: from classical to opera, nothing gets spared from irreverent and affectionate observation. Bach, Beethoven, Wagner, Pagan in i, Verdi, Rossini and Puccini are just some of the personages called in for this "Opera", where, more or less respectfully, they are asked to provide ten minutes of sheer amusement.
