The Hurt Locker


Pittsburgh Opera Film Series: a partnership with Pittsburgh Filmmakers

Subscribers receive exclusive priority access to our popular Film Series, held on selected dates during the season. Pittsburgh Opera and Pittsburgh Filmmakers collaborate to choose films that pair with the current season's operas...sometimes in surprising ways! 

Our film pairing for The Long Walk is The Hurt Locker.

Staff Sgt. William James (Jeremy Renner), Sgt. J.T. Sanborn (Anthony Mackie) and Specialist Owen Eldridge (Brian Geraghty) are members of a bomb-disposal unit in Baghdad. As their tour of duty enters its final weeks, the men face a set of increasingly hazardous situations, any of which could end their lives in an explosive instant. Watch the trailer.
