A wonderful story of a life in the theatre, and how a passion for opera transforms a prompter's life outside the box!
8 March 2000 | by BA624See all my reviews

This film just screened at the Santa Barbara Film Festival to packed houses, and we were lucky enough to have both director and star participate in a Q&A. I loved this story of a woman's passion for music and how she must learn to demand from her life the same intense connection she finds in her work as a prompter for the opera. The film focuses on Siv, who is rehearsing for a production of AIDA at the same time she is preparing to marry a divorced father who shares custody of two kids. The backstage rehearsal and performance scenes are well-scripted and filmed, as are the struggles Siv experiences to fit into a household that still feels the presence of her new husband's ex. A great film debut by a fine theatre director, and an irresistible performance by the leading actress/singer, a renowned comedienne
