Nostalghia

Nostalghia is Andrei Tarkovsky's brooding late masterpiece, a darkly poetic vision of exile. It was the first of his features to be made outside of Russia, the home to which he would never return.

Scala Scalissima [electronic resource]: The Renovation of la Scala

When La Scala underwent drastic refurbishment beginning in 2002 there were loud cries of protest from fans who feared the historic authenticity of the 200-year-old theater would be lost. But the stage area was soon demolished and the auditorium rebuilt to let La Scala, which was once lit by candles, come fully into the modern age. In the end, the process allowed restorers to discover features that had been buried for centuries and to incorporate them into La Scala's new look. With input from the artisans, architects, and sound experts involved, this program chronicles the renovation of La Scala and the care taken to honor its original aesthetics.
