Other Screenings

Hitchcock's masterpiece rests on the masterful sound work by Bernard Herrmann, who wrapped this sophisticated thriller in equally sophisticated layers of sounds orchestrated with revolutionary techniques, which also draw inspiration from Wagner's opera Tristan und Isolde. Those who will research and compare the plot of that opera with the plot of Vertigo will discover more layers of depth in the inseparable connection between sound and image that Hitchcock and Herrmann sewed together.
