Top 100 Performing Arts/Opera Films

(November 4, 2014)
Bye Theatreland Broadway's Lost Treasures
This week's Top Renter list combines the Performing Arts and Opera sections. Once again, Sylvie Guillem and Mats Ek's "Bye", a solo dance piece set to Beethoven's last piano sonata, Opus 111, is the top renter. The next most popular title, "Theatreland", is a behind the scenes look at the Theatre Royal Haymarket. Coming in third is "Broadway's Lost Treasures", compiling all the performances from the Tony Awards ceremonies between 1967 and 1986. The rest of the Top 10 is primarily opera with a Blue Man Group titles thrown in the mix. Although both our Performing Arts and Opera sections are fairly large, neither gets the love they deserve -- but, there are still some great titles in both that are well worth watching. A note for Opera Lovers: for a complete list of the operas we stock (with a short description and box art), click here. So, here they are, the Top Renters from the Performing Arts & Opera sections:
