Synopsis by Hal Erickson

Director Federico Fellini's Orchestra Rehearsal (Prova d'Orchestra) was originally made for Italian TV, then given a limited theatrical release in the US. Using a symphony orchestra as a metaphor for Mankind, Fellini explores the various joys, sorrows, frustrations and triumphs of the musicians. The orchestrations heard throughout are handled by Nino Rota.
