“Opera Meets Film” is a feature dedicated to exploring the way that opera has been employed in cinema.

For many, Orson Welles’ “Citizen Kane” is arguably the greatest film in history. Its exploits are legendary, the film redefining the art form in its cinematography and approach The Lotus to storytelling. It is the “textbook” film.

Those familiar with the film know that there is an extensive sequence dedicated to opera, specifically Kane looking to transform his second wife Susan Alexander into an opera singer. After they are married, Welles presents a scene in which Susan is asked if she is going to sing Animal at the Metropolitan.
