(Francia, Svizzera / 2017 / 110’)

Autumn of 2015. At the Opera of Paris, Stéphane Lissner is finalising the preparations for his first press conference as artistic director, in which he will present the new season. But the news of a strike and the addition to the cast of an unexpected performer (a bull!) will complicate the situation. Meanwhile, the fate of a young Russian singer who attends the Academy of the Opera crosses paths with one of the greatest voices of his time. Director Jean-Stéphane Bron shows us life behind the scenes of the Paris Opera, following the antics of one of his most complex seasons ever, thus staging the timeless farce – resembling occasionally a tragedy - of human events.
