Aria - Special Edition DVD

Aria - Special Edition 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 with complete artistic freedom to stray from the narrative of the piece. The diversity of approaches and filmmaking styles resulted in an exhilarating operatic anthology by turns erotic, violent, funny and poignant. As well as the most prestigious collection of directors ever assembled, 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, Theresa Russell, Buck Henry, Beverly D'Angelo and Sophie Ward.

A remarkable collective achievement, Aria is a cinematic experience like no other.
