The 1951 musical drama, “The Great Caruso,” starring Mario Lanza and Ann Blyth, screens at the Soper Reese Theatre on Tuesday, July 24, at 1:00 and 6:00 pm. Entry to the film is by donation. This fictionalized film traces tenor Enrico Caruso’s ascension from adolescent choir singer to the uppermost ranks of the opera world. His first love is Musetta from his home town of Naples, and then Dorothy, the daughter of one of the Metropolitan Opera's patrons. Caruso is unacceptable to both women's fathers: to one, because he sings; to the other, because he is a peasant. Throughout you’ll be treated to the voice of the fabulous Mario Lanza and 1950s stars from the Metropolitan Opera. The movie is sponsored by Alex Valiansky. Rated G. Run time is 1 hour and 49 minutes. The Soper Reese Theatre is located at 275 S. Main St., Lakeport, 707-263-0577, soperreesetheatre.com.
