It kind of makes sense I guess. Atom Egoyan is making a film about a production of Richard Strauss’ Salome using the current COC production and cast as part of the process. It’s to be called Seven Veils and is backed by Rhombus Media and will star Amanda Seyfried as Jeanine, a young woman who has been given the task of remounting a production of Salome originally created by her mentor. One press release describes Jeanine as a “tortured opera director” which is an idea that might appeal to a certain section of the local opera audience. No word on a prospective release date. I guess this is about the only way many people will experience (at least part of) Ambur Braid’s amazing portrayal of the title role.
