“The State Opera” is the first film ever made about the Bavarian State Opera, one of the world’s oldest, most prestigious and internationally esteemed companies. It charts the course of three operas – “Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg”, “Les Indes galantes” and “Un ballo in maschera” – as they come to life on the stage. We meet some of the great singers, such as Jonas Kaufmann and Anja Harteros, in performance and behind the scenes, past and present artistic directors Sir Peter Jonas and Igor Zelensky, as well as two of the music directors Kirill Petrenko and his predecessor Zubin Mehta. As both a celebration and an exploration, this entertaining film is a declaration of love for the operatic form.
