The Opera is a place full of mysteries and magic. The sets, the music, the costumes … and the place itself. We have tried through these films to extend this magic and to get it out of the stage. All the films dissect everything that symbolizes the Opera and place them in another context: A dancer isolated from any decor, An orchestra following you and play the soundtrack of your life, the opera background sets used for curing broken hearts…. Magic and symbolic force survive. For all families.
