After the huge success of ‘The Baton’ (one of the 2011 Golden Prague film winners) the makers created a new and unconventional documentary about opera. Using a mixture of animation, documentary and an exciting feature film, ‘Grosse Oper – Verdi’ is about a newspaper employee who has to write a story about a young Hungarian director that is staging his own version of Rigoletto at the Bavarian State Opera. Through this interesting and original approach, we delve deep into music, singing, acting, staging, and the fascinating world of Giuseppe Verdi.
