Barbara Hannigan - Taking Risks The singer and conductor debuts as an opera conductor

About

The indefatigable Barbara Hannigan (b. 1971) always finds a way to juggle her parallel careers as superstar soprano and dynamo conductor. This documentary grants us an up-close look at her rigorous process as she auditions, selects, and coaches the soloists in Stravinsky’s The Rake’s Progress, her first experience conducting a full-length opera.
