The premiere of “The Opera” earned A.G.R. to write a long-awaited obituary for the show.
The film premiered at the Cannes Film Festival, but has yet to be made available online.
“We have been working on it for three years and we have not made it available to the public,” A. G.R., who directed the show with producer Richard M. Davis, told The Hollywood Reporter.
“The idea is to make it available only as a limited edition, and that’s what we’ve done.”
The “The opera” premiered at Cannes on June 27 and received generally positive reviews, with Variety describing it as “a visually dazzling, deeply intimate look at love and friendship.”
The show, which has been described as “the ultimate soap opera,” has drawn criticism for its heavy use of prosthetic makeup and performances.
However, Davis said in an interview that the show has “delivered a unique portrait of the human condition.”
The series will be available to stream on the A. V. Club’s Netflix service starting June 29, with additional episodes coming soon.
The first season of the show, directed by John Gielgud, premiered on ABC on June 21, with the second season premiering this summer.
