Director Federico Fellini's Orchestra Rehearsal (Prova d'Orchestra) was originally made for Italian TV, then given a limited theatrical release in the US.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. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A relatively minor film by Fellini standards, it's still smart, compelling viewing, and its conclusion -- an ambiguous tribute to the unifying power of the arts -- is as provocative as most of the director's films."
‑ Keith Phipps, AV Club
"...a true Fellini film with humorous and thoughtful phrasing by an excellent ensemble cast of unknowns"
‑ John A. Nesbit, Old School Reviews
"Fellini's films often seem lazy, but this one looks plain tired."
‑ Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader
"Orchesta Rehearsal is a witty reflection on the human condition--especially our penchant for stressing individual liberty over social good."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
