Storyline

This documentary spans the life and career of Spanish soprano Montserrat Caballé, one of the very best ever - a legend, arguably the "queen" of all divas still singing. In locations throughout the world where Ms. Caballé sang, we hear interviews with Ms. Caballé, her family, and by opera and music giants like Claudio Abbado, José Carreras, Giuseppe Di Stefano, Plácido Domingo, Renée Fleming, Dame Joan Sutherland, and Zubin Mehta, also appearing often in clips showing joint collaborations. Of these, the film includes passages from Caballé's most acclaimed roles such as "Norma"', "Tosca" , "Turandot" and her earliest recorded live performance (1966) as "Anne Boleyn," in addition to poignant and powerful live concert duets with fellow Spaniards Plácido Domingo, Juan Pons, and José Carreras.

Doc worthy of the Spanish Diva
7 November 2003 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Opera fans will hardly find a better documentary about divas of the operatic world than this film. The life of the reigning queen of opera is interestingly told in a series of interviews, excerpts of her performances, and beautiful locations worldwide.

The film not only details the career highlights of the soprano, but also highlights her personal life. The interviews in five different languages (mainly in Spanish, English, and Catalan) feature diverse personalities, from her daughter and husband, to the likes of Dame Joan Sutherland, and Placido Domingo, among many more.

Rare footage of live performances include the diva's earliest known one in the mid 60, and thrilling duets with Jose Carreras, and the like. All this is presented in a captivating way, following the footsteps defining the singer's life: Barcelona, Basel, Germany, New York, Milan, and Vienna. Definitely, a must for opera lovers.
