Sweeping in scope yet full of intimate moments, The Paris Opera offers a candid look behind the scenes of one of the world's foremost performing arts institutions. Over the course of one tumultuous season, director Jean-Stephane Bron nimbly juggles multiple storylines - from ballet and opera rehearsals, to strike negotiations, last minute crises and ticket disputes - revealing the dedication of the talented personnel who bring breathtaking spectacles to the stage night after night.

"Recommended" - Video Librarian "How the excellence happens is what interests Swiss filmmaker Bron and his skill in telling that story keeps viewers engaged." - Bonnie Jo Dopp, EMRO. Recommended.
