Director Luchino Visconti perhaps never achieved more elegant heights than he does in this beautifully photographed pairing of 19th-century Italian aristocracy and the operatic grandeur of Bruckner and Verdi.

ABOUT THIS SERIES

Born into a prominent family of Milanese aristocrats, Luchino Visconti had a rare perspective on social class and familial tradition that informs his work. His films, small at first, grew to operatic proportions as his career went on, with a thematic grandeur to equal their visual opulence. We are honored to present several new restorations of his films as part of this touring series.
