    Book Tickets for The Opera House. Genre: Documentary Director: Susan Froemke Cast: People as themselves Release Date: 21/06/ Feature Runtime: 1 hr 50 mins Trailers: Approx. 20 mins Synopsis 'The Opera House', a new film by award–winning documentary filmmaker Susan Froemke, surveys a remarkable period of the Metropolitan Opera’s rich history and a time of great change for New York.   The camera supposedly never lies, yet film's ability to frame, cut and reconstruct all that passed before its lens made cinema the pre-eminent medium of visual illusion and revelation from the early twentieth century onwards. This volume examines film's creative history of special effects and trickery, encompassing everything from George Méliès' first trick films to the modern CGI era.
