File:Allegro non Troppo LOW 6029.jpg

Allegro Non Troppo (but there are tropes) is an Italian animated film functioning as a parody of Disney's Fantasia. Like Fantasia, Allegro Non Troppo melds classical music with animation, the sequences ranging from utterly bizarre to depressing beyond belief. Between the pieces are short, sepia-tone, live-action shots of the orchestra and the animator. Pieces played in the film are:

  • Prélude à l'après-midi d'un faune by Claude Debussy--A parody of Beethoven's Pastorale from Fantasia, where an elderly faun tries to get a nymph for himself, but fails every time.
  • Slavonic Dance No. 7 Op. 46 by Antonín Dvořák -A caveman sets out to build better dwellings than the other cavemen, who repeatedly mimic every act he does.
  • Boléro by Maurice Ravel--Possibly the film's most famous sequence, where a soda bottle left on a wasteland creates an evolution of bizarre creatures in a parody of The Rite of Spring from Fantasia.
  • Valse Triste by Jean Sibelius--The film's saddest piece, in which a small cat is left in a destroyed house, remembering the good times spent there only to have reality come crashing upon it.
  • Concerto in C major for 2 Oboes, 2 Clarinets, Strings and Continuo RV 559 I. Larghetto - (Allegro) by Antonio Vivaldi--A bee tries to enjoy a meal on a flower only to have a rowdy couple thwart her attempts.
  • The Firebird by Igor Stravinsky--God makes Adam and Eve and the serpent tries to get them to eat the apple of knowledge. When they refuse, the serpent eats it himself and is thrown into a hellish environment of Western materialism and commercialism.
