Although I have enjoyed the few live and movie productions I have attended, I am not an opera fan, but as a musician I can appreciate its place as ultimate theater/music/art. As such, most operas - even made into movies - tend to feel like distant spectacles; we are the audience, perhaps invited on the stage, but still as spectators. This movie, however, offers us an opportunity to live within the action, even feeling part of the drama. The music is easy to listen to, the settings are realistic, and the singers are obviously masters of their craft; so whatever you feel about the plot or its treatment of the events/issues, I think you will get something positive from spending 2 hours on the Achille Lauro.
