  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

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.
Tropes used in Allegro Non Troppo include:
