FREDONIA — The 1891 Fredonia Opera House will present Rembrandt, a special cinematic exploration of the masterful 2014 exhibition of the revered artist’s work, today, at 7 p.m. as part of its Art & Architecture On Screen Series.

Every Rembrandt exhibition is eagerly anticipated; but this major show hosted by London’s National Gallery and Amsterdam’s Rijksmuseum in 2014, was an event like no other.

Given privileged access to both galleries, Rembrandt documents this landmark exhibition, interweaving the artist’s life story with behind-the-scenes preparation at these two world-famous institutions.

Exploring many of the exhibition’s key works, with contributions from specially invited guests including curators and leading art historians, this cinematic production makes a welcome return to the big screen marking the 350th anniversary of Rembrandt’s death.

For many, Rembrandt is the greatest artist that ever lived; and this deeply moving production seeks to explore the truth about the man behind the legend. The production runs approximately one hour, 30 minutes.

Individual tickets to Rembrandt are $15, and $10 for students. A special Live in HD Series flexible subscription of eight tickets that can be used however you want – one at a time to eight different events, all at once for eight people, or anything in between – is $116. Tickets may be purchased in person at the Opera House Box Office or by phone at 679-1891, Tuesday-Friday, 1-5 p.m. Tickets may be purchased online anytime at fredopera.org.

The Art & Architecture Series is sponsored by Fredonia Place. Support also comes from the United Arts Appeal of Chautauqua County.

The 1891 Fredonia Opera House is a member-supported not-for-profit organization located in Village Hall in downtown Fredonia. For a complete schedule of events, visit fredopera.org.
