Dario Argento's 'Opera' Gets (UK) Blu-Ray Release With New 2K Restoration from CultFilms

Dario Argento (Suspiria) returns to CultFilms with this breath-taking new restoration of his visionary horror masterpiece Opera.

Splattered with stylistic bloodshed and soaring cinematography, Opera shows Italy’s master of horror at the very height of his game.

Synopsis: “When young understudy Betty takes the lead role in a new operatic production of Verdi’s Macbeth, she soon attracts the attention of a knife-wielding psycho who forces her to watch – with eyes pinned open – as he brutally despatches her friends and colleagues with sadistic delight. Can Betty free herself from this unending nightmare or does a more terrifying fate await? OPERA is a ravishing return to the giallo style Argento made his name with, awash with black-gloved killers, lavish bloodletting and the director’s expressionistic Grand Guignol excess.”

 
CultFilms is proud to bring you this gore-soaked terror classic in a stunning new 2K restoration, with colour regrading carried out under instruction from the maestro himself and in reference to his own, preferred, original cinema print.

SPECIAL FEATURE CONTENTS:

  • Aria of Fear’: a brand new candid interview with director Dario Argento, revisiting his work from a fresh viewpoint
  • ‘Opera Backstage’: a unique behind the scenes documentary about Dario Argento directing Opera
  • Restoration featurette: from raw scan to the regraded, restored and reframed final vision

Starring: Cristina Marsillach, Ian Charleson (Chariots of Fire) and Daria Nicolodi (Deep Red). With music by Brian Eno, Bill Wyman, long-time Argento favourite Claudio Simonetti and the divinity herself Maria Callas.
