Les Indes Galantes

A film by Holger Preusse

This film tells the story of one of the most magic moments in operatic history; the beginning of 1964 held a great surprise for the musical world: Maria Callas returned to the opera stage as prima donna. Her Tosca at the Royal Opera House became a sensation. The film tells the story of the event from todays perspective and features interviews with Antonio Pappano, Rolando Villazón, Rufus Wainwright, Thomas Hampson, Anna Prohaska Wolfgang Joop, Jürgen Kesting, Brian McMaster, and Kristine Opolais. As bonus the performance of Tosca´s second act is included. It is one of the most dramatic acts in opera history. The film recording is one of the few opportunities to see Maria Callas on stage and witness her emotional dramatics and vocal competence.

Released: March 2018
