Sky Arts and English National Opera have teamed up for a unique collaboration with leading figures from the visual arts to produce short films.
Werner Herzog, Sam Taylor-Wood and Dougal Wilson's short-films accompany a popular aria from ENO's 2008/09 Sky Arts Season and the films will be broadcast on Sky Arts throughout February.
O Soave Fanciulla (Oh you vision of beauty) from La Bohème (a production which opens at ENO on 2 February 2009) was the choice of Werner Herzog, who explained: "I've no doubt that the film shorts will generate interest from a whole new generation of music lovers - the results are fantastic. Filming in High Definition in Africa allowed us to juxtapose the traditions of opera with a real innovative setting, the uniqueness of which is hopefully reflected in the final film."
