The French tend to be so damn self-congratulatory about Josephine Baker and various black jazz musicians and other artists who have immigrated there. Maybe it would be interesting to rent the movie just to see how one-sided or how balanced it might be.

Kaream, do you know of this one? War Requiem.

It's not exactly an opera but a "cinematic interpretation of composer Benjamin Britten's famed oratorio. Narrated by Lord Laurence Olivier, whose last film this was, War Requiem combines Britten's music with the words of English poet (and World War 1 casualty Wilfred Owen) and Jarman's stark, symbolic images"

Jarman + Britten = Interesting.

Shouldn't this really be split into two lists?

Ballet:

Altman's The Company should probably be included.

One of the best recent anime titles, IMHO Princess Tutu.

I'm dating myself by mentioning The Turning Point, aren't I?

I'll make up for that by adding Billy Elliot to the list.

Opera:
The anthology film ARIA might be a good addition.

Has everyone forgotten DIVA?

How about Farinelli? All I can say is "ouch!"

How can we leave out Tommy or Jesus Christ Superstar?

OK, I guess one that deserves to be on both lists is the weird but magnificent Prospero's Books... too bad there's no DVD....
