Aria DVD


Conceived developed and produced by Don Boyd Aria is a completely unique film both structurally and also in the sheer scale of the production itself. Ten of the world's most creative and celebrated directors were each given the same brief; to choose a piece of opera music and then present a visual interpretation of that music. The result is by turns erotic violent funny and poignant. The stills photographers assigned to each were equally celebrated among them David Bailey Annie Leibovitz Lord Snowdon Terry O'Neill and John Swannell. The impressive cast list includes John Hurt Tilda Swinton Bridget Fonda and Elizabeth Hurley Teresa Russell. A remarkable collective achievement Aria is a cinematic experience like no other.

Producer Don Boyd brought together 10 of the world&39;s most revered directors--including Jean-Luc Godard Franc Roddam Derek Jarman and Ken Russell--in order to pay homage to the opera with this episodic feature Each director was asked to choose an aria from an operatic work and create a short film inspired by the emotions and intensity of the music rather than merely re-creating the opera itself True to form the result is a bizarre moving and broad work of entertainment

Music from Carpenter, Erich Korngold, Ruggiero Leon Cavallo, Jean-Baptiste Lully, Giacomo Puccini, Jean Philippe Rameau, Giuseppe Verdi and Richard Wagner. Ten film directors set the music of the operatic greats to contemporary images.
