In 2006, the Mozart22 project took place in honor of the 250th anniversary of the composer's birth. It was a major project to recreate the twenty-two operas and oratorios composed by Mozart. This documentary goes behind the scenes of the production of Ascanio in Alba at that time.
The Salzburg Festival of 2006 gathered the best specialists of the Mozart repertoire - singers, conductors and directors - to interpret this unique selection of works.
This opera revisits the opera "Zaide" by Mozart by framing it within the work of an original composition by Chaya Czernowin. The result is a success, and this documentary gives us the opportunity to learn about this interesting creation. With excerpts from the opera and interviews with the composer (Chaya Czernowin), singers (Mojca Erdmann, Topi Lehtipuu, John Mark Ainsley), the director (Claus Guth) and the technical team (Alex Buresch, Kai Ehlers), the viewer has access to the perception of the artists and performers of the Opera.
