Movie Info

Adam (Richard E. Grant) is a rich industrialist, who aspires to a more cultured world. Spurred on by playful jibes that he is little more than a city suit living the capitalist's dream, this frustrated amateur opera singer decides to throw an opera in his lavish country retreat. Once his friends see him belting out the notes, he feels sure it will spell the end to their shallow taunts. In fact, it might even help him win the hand of Celia (Sarah Brightman), the female conductor he has been pursuing whom - it just so happens - is the first to be recruited for his showpiece.

A pallid gloss of a work that teems with deception, disguise and mistaken identity, not to mention humor.

The movie may appeal to theater aficionados and Juilliard undergrads, but to the average moviegoer, it's a trudge.

It's hard to explain why every character in 1st Night behaves like an adolescent in a sitcom.

The whole thing descends into oo-er bedroom farce when life begins to mimic the antics of Mozart's opera.

First Night feels like a missed opportunity.

Sep 8, 2017 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

The music of Mozart seems too big for the "book" of this minor-key romantic roundelay, which nevertheless manages to be increasingly, albeit mildly, engaging.
