A Rediscovered Confection
19 February 2001 | by See all my reviews

Ernst Marischka's film was one of the first Austrian features shot in colour, and assembles some of the most renowned actors of the time. Last seen in cinemas in 1957, the feature was presumed lost for almost 40 years, until a misplaced negative was discovered at the Austrian Film Archives. After electronic enhancement of the picture quality and soundtrack, television viewers were able to see Opera Ball in all it's original visual and musical splendour in 1998.

Opera Ball is a delightful throwback to the gaudy over-embellished European musicals of the era, lavishly costumed and produced, and bursting with favourite musical themes of former times. The story, concerning the supposed infidelities of three couples, is a little corny and old-hat, but the exuberance and attractiveness of the enthusiastic young cast, some funny moments from a handful of old timers, the lavish settings and lilting music, and above all the stunning Agfacolor photography (which puts most modern colour processes to shame) combine to create a most pleasant entertainment.
