Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The best of the 10 segments is, perhaps predictably, the rare one without lofty pretensions."
‑ Janet Maslin, New York Times
"Uneven compendium film. Russell, Temple, and Roddam are the best things. Goddard is the worst."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"So diverse in nature that it can only be evaluated piecemeal"
‑ Shane Burridge,
"I am not sure that any indispensable statement about opera has been made here, and purists will no doubt recoil by the irreverence of some of the images. But the film is fun almost as a satire of itself."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"pretentious piffle that's pretty much one sour note after another"
‑ James Sanford, Kalamazoo Gazette
"Is it worth watching a film composed of ten segments in order to appreciate three or four? It might not be worthwhile, but it would be a shame to miss Godard, Sturridge and Roddam's work."
‑ Brian Webster, Apollo Guide
"Aria gives 10 filmmakers a chance to create vignettes set to well-known opera arias."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
"Seriously, do vanity projects like this really need to be made? Don't we all have better things to do?"
‑ Christopher Null,
