The library's free foreign film series presents an award-winning documentary from France by director Jean-Stéphane Bron, screening at the Chief Theater.

Sweeping in scope yet full of intimate moments, The Paris Opera offers a candid look behind the scenes of one of the world's foremost performing arts institutions. Over the course of one tumultuous season, director Jean-Stephane Bron nimbly juggles multiple storylines - from ballet and opera rehearsals, to strike negotiations, last minute crises and ticket disputes - revealing the dedication of the talented personnel who bring breathtaking spectacles to the stage night after night.

A French film screening bonus! Steamboat's French Club will gather before the film at 6 p.m. in the Chief Theater's Black Box Lounge for conversational French, wine specials and potluck appetizers. All French speakers welcome.
