Opera (1987) TItle.jpg

Director

Dario Argento

Storyline

A young opera singer, Betty, is called to replace the well-known leading singer, hit by a car on the eve of the premiere of Verdi's Macbeth. Betty achieves a great success, but after the performance, a murdered man is found. It is only the first of a series of killings, to which the young woman will be forced to witness by the killer, who loves to tie her and then apply some needlests in front of her eyes, so that she cannot take her gaze off from this brutality.

Note
I've posted only few images of the extras inside the Opera Theater because It is unlikely to find Roman Generici here, as the interior is that of the Teatro Regio of Parma and therefore, for simple economic reasons, the audience must have been engaged in this city.

Hmm... could Victim #1 maybe be Maria Chiara Sasso, known from Dèmoni 2 (1986)?
