OPERA AT THE MOVIES: Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown

Bryn Mawr Film Institute (824 W. Lancaster Avenue, Bryn Mawr, PA 19010)
Tickets are $12 with discounts for seniors, students, and BMFI members. Available here.
 
This frenetic black comedy twists and turns around a cast of fiery, if not unstable, women who are all tangentially bound together through their dysfunctional liaisons with men. This breakout success shot writer/director Pedro Almodóvar into the international spotlight, and was nominated for several awards, including the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film. Shown in conjunction with Opera Philadelphia’s new production of The Barber of Seville, which was inspired by Almodóvar’s film, a selection from the opera will be performed prior to the screening.
