When: Thu., March 1, 7 p.m.
Pittsburgh Opera and Pittsburgh Filmmakers collaborate to choose films that pair with the current season's operas...sometimes in surprising ways! Our film pairing for Moby-Dick is In the Heart of the Sea. In 1820, crewmen (Chris Hemsworth, Benjamin Walker, Cillian Murphy) aboard the New England vessel Essex face a harrowing battle for survival when a whale of mammoth size and strength attacks with force, crippling their ship and leaving them adrift in the ocean. Their incredible tale ultimately inspires author Herman Melville to write "Moby-Dick." (2015) MPAA Rating: PG-13. 121 minutes. RSVP by Wednesday, April 30th at 4:00, 412-281-0912
