Synopsis by Rebecca Flint Marx

Documentary filmmaker Trevor Graham gives audiences a priceless glimpse into the sound and the fury behind the staging of Tosca at Sydney's legendary Opera House. With only three weeks of rehearsal, a temperamental diva, and ever-heightening tensions that threaten to explode between various collaborators, the work that goes into preparing the opera for an audience tends to be more dramatic than the production itself. Even viewers who have no interest in opera will most likely be taken in by the kind of dynamics that often make truth more compelling than fiction.
