Elgar and Dance of the Seven Veils in London


Iain Fisher:
Elgar and Dance of the Seven Veils are on at the National Film Theatre in London on 3 Nov 2022.

"Russell’s daring film about the life of Richard Strauss, made for the Omnibus strand, was shown once and then banned because of objections from the Strauss estate, who blocked the use of his music. Now these compositions have finally come into the public domain it can be seen again. The film was hugely controversial, but it is a fine example of Russell at his most extravagant and attracted a wide and curious audience."
