Musicals & Music

Ever since the arrival of sound, musicals and music films have been a huge part of the movies, from the dextrous toe-tapping of Fred Astaire up to the super sing-along of Mamma Mia! But there's more to music on film than the snappy tunes and acrobatic dancing of the great musicals: opera and classical music are well represented on DVD too. There's something for every music lover.
