Meeting Venus (1991)
PG-13 · 1h 59min · Comedy, Drama, Romance · 1 December 1991
A deliciously biting satire about both the world of Grand Opera and United Europe. A Hungarian conductor (Arestrup) attempts to mount a bold new production of Richard Wagner's "Tannhäuser" while navigating the snares and pitfalls of artistic egos, rampant nationalism, internal company and union politics, and precarious funding.
