The Paris Opera, director : Jean-Stéphane Bron

Autumn 2015. At the Paris Opera, Stéphane Lissner is putting the finishing touches to his first press conference as director. Backstage, artists and crew prepare to raise the curtain on a new season. But the announcement of a strike and arrival of a bull in a supporting role complicate matters. At the same time, a promising young Russian singer begins at the Opera’s Academy. As the season progresses, more and more characters appear, playing out the human comedy in the manner of a documentary.
