Cristina Marsillach in Dario Argento’s Opera

When young opera singer Betty (Cristina Marsillach, Every Time We Say Goodbye) takes over the leading role in an avant-garde presentation of Verdi’s Macbeth, she triggers the madness of a crazed fan who repeatedly forces her to watch the brutal murders of her friends. Will her recurring childhood nightmare hold the key to the identity of this psychopath, or does an even more horrific evil lay waiting in the wings?

The Blu-ray will feature a new 2K scan, a new 5.1 soundtrack, a new interview with Opera co-star William McNamara and a never-before-released-in-the-U.S. interview with Argento.
