Le Grand Macabre is an experimental film made after the audio recording of the opera with the same name, recorded live in Paris, Theatre du Chatelet, in February 1998. The composer György Ligeti, a contemporary classical avant-garde author, who made a strong impression on music itself, also enriched the field of film with unforgettable passages in the Kubrick's Odyssey 2001, The Shining and Eyes Wide Shut.
