Opera Fanatic, the world’s first opera road movie, needs no Route 66, no Harley Davidson and no smell of gasoline and burning rubber. Things are altogether more stylish when ten divas and a tenor come together with their heady combination of droll humour and vanity. Their quest for the secret of the “chest voice” turns into a road movie that will appeal to more than just opera fans. Jan Schmidt-Garre lets the eccentric old ladies speak for themselves and in tenor Stefan Zucker confronts them with an expert whose originality lends the film much of its charm. A journey to the heart of Italian opera in the 1950s - pure pleasure!

“We are living in an era of Barbie doll opera singers who look good and move well but lack expressiveness. What we need are singers with hair under their arms“. Stefan Zucker
