Tongue-in-Cheek Music
1 April 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The beautiful music for the opera in the film, an imaginary work titled "L'Amore di Fatima," was written by Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco.

In a little tongue-in-cheek detail, the poster for the opera lists Tedesco — who also wrote real operas — as the composer.

I imagine this might have sent innumerable musical scholars on a fruitless search for the complete score of this hitherto "unknown work" by the prolific composer.

To add to the illusion of the opera's authenticity, in the film Paul Douglas also sings some known songs, including a musical setting of the Kipling poem "The Road to Mandalay" (a real pot-boiler) and the "Toreador Song" from "Carmen."

The singing is in itself one of the film's recommendations. The producers were not afraid to include long stretches of music that are quite rapturous.
