Operatic is a music documentary about the young opera ensemble The Cast. This "opera band" was founded in 2012 in Cologne, and consists of six professional singers from around the world and their pianist. Their goal: to introduce the opera music they love to a wider audience, outside the established classical opera venues.
The film crew followed The Cast for over a year on their German Tour, with concerts in Hamburg, Berlin, Bremen, Cologne, and Bonn, as well as a special concert in Paris.
In order to survive in the competitive opera and classical music industry, this group is taking a new path. The film gives insight into their lives as freelance opera singers, their collaboration in an ensemble, and their inspiration-fuelled journey across Europe.
