To celebarte the 150th anniversary of the Wiener Staatsoper, an entertaining documentary is being produced in which Roland Villazón as a popular tenor guides the viewers through the Haus am Ring and its eventful history. He meets many colleagues - singers, orchestra members, directors and stage workers who share original and touching stories to celebrate the birthday of this venerable house.
While a team of architects takes apart the blueprints of the opera, Konrad Paul Liessmann once again proves to be a musical opera connoisseur with a philosophical background. But what the opera really is about is ultimately decided by a fun singing contest with the most beautiful arias.
