A pianist with stage fright endures a performance under the eyes of a mysterious sniper, who will shoot and kill him if a wrong note is played.
Wood had worked with a teacher three weeks prior to going to Barcelona and found it stressful having to play the piano and speak at the same time saying, "It was incredibly technical [...] lots of moments where it was jumping from where I'd play, listen to a click, listen to music, have to be in the right place and the right time and hear dialogue and repeat dialogue".
Do what you do. And try and have some fun. And remember, it's just music.
The opening drive into Chicago begins southbound on Lake Shore Drive, then northbound on LaSalle (you'll recognize it from the Batman films), then south on Wabash, then suddenly across the river, coming east on Washington, where the car finally stops at the Lyric Opera building. The interiors were shot elsewhere, so nothing looks like the actual hall.
At the end of the credit roll we hear The Impossible Piece being played while the title shows.
