Through this documentary, we can discover the backstage of a very special opera by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart: La clemenza di Tito. The masterpiece was given in the Palais Garnier (Paris) in 2005 with great singers such as Susan Graham (Sesto) or Christoph Prégardien (Tito). All the people who participated to the production are given an opportunity to explain their vision of the work. A unique occasion for us to understand why this work was considered as provocative, or why the musical aspect of the composition is so modern.
