A fascinating behind-the-scenes look at the staging of a major operatic production, Verdi's masterpiece, La Traviata, starring world-famous French coloratura soprano Natalie Dessay and directed by the celebrated Jean-Francois Sivardier.
Over two months, filmmaker Philippe Beziat follows the production's development from opening rehearsals to glorious realization, with music performed by the London Symphony Orchestra conducted by Louis Langrée.
«Impressionistic, handsomely shot...Becoming Traviata has what any good movie needs: a star — the ever-game soprano Natalie Dessay.» — The New York Times
