Storyline

Adam is a rich industrialist, who aspires to a more cultured world. Spurred on by playful jibes that he is little more than a city suit living the capitalist's dream, this frustrated amateur opera singer decides to throw an opera in his lavish country retreat. Once his friends see him belting out the notes, he feels sure it will spell the end to their shallow taunts. In fact, it might even help him win the hand of a female conductor he has been pursuing whom - it just so happens - is the first to be recruited for his showpiece. Written by Anonymous

Very entertaining and beautiful to look at
21 July 2014 | by ematersoSee all my reviews

The basis of the story is the presentation of an opera at a private home (mansion really) it is also a romance with several relationships (not all what the viewer might expect) going on.

If you love music, beautiful settings and scenery, attractive cast members, a behind the scenes look at what goes into a small production as presented here, try to see this thoroughly delightful film.

My husband and I were put in mind of Woody Allen's "midsummers eve" well that is without the Shakespere or fantasy elements. The pacing and the use of the properties to move the story forward though are very similar.

We have recently acquired a roku, and are disappointed that streamed films are not as numerous as DVDs from Netflix. So this film was a much appreciated surprise.
