Vous reprendrez bien un peu d'Opéra!
A musical journey through the French opera houses
A journey in France among the opera houses of today.
In 2007, the opera celebrated its four-hundredth birthday. At the same time, this film set off for a road trip in France, on the trail of the greatest opera houses of today, from Lille to Toulouse, from Paris to Lyon and from Caen to Bordeaux.
Meet the people who run these places, learn about the uncommon trades plied by the teams who work at these century-old houses, and discover how, despite the persistent clichés, opera has opened up to a wide audience in the last few years. Far from being a fossilised heritage institution, the opera house is a hub for a city's cultural, social and economic activity, a place full of life where many productions come into being every year.
Finally, this film shows how these age-old theatres, initially dedicated to lyrical art, have opened up to other forms of live performances and musical genres, such as jazz and world music.
