Notes & Reviews:
Founded in 1844 as an "exclusive amusement establishment," the Kroll opera has left deep traces in the history of Germany. This documentary by Jörg Moser-Metius illustrates the eventful history of the opera house, capturing the architectural, political, and social developments centering around this cornerstone where "German history became manifest."Notes & Reviews:
Run Time: 59 min.
Picture Format: NTSC, 4:3, B&W
Sound Format(s): Mono,
The program is well presented, and if you like such documentaries then you will definitely enjoy this one. But if you are looking for something with more of a musical focus then the fact that this was a famous opera house, then it might not be quite what you are looking for.
