Cremaster 5

Directed by Matthew Barney
United States, 1997


A lyric opera complete with ribboned Jacobin pigeons, a lovelorn queen, and her tragic hero, flowing from the gilded proscenium theater arch to the aqueous underworld of Budapest’s Danube River to humid Gellért baths inhabited by hermaphroditic water-sprites frolicking in a pool of pearl bubbles.
