A co-production by Film Australia and the Australian Opera, this film of compelling interest to opera-lovers features throughout Australian stars Joan Sutherland and Richard Bonynge. We are taken behind the Sydney Opera House curtain to explore many of the preparations required to stage such an opera as “Lakma”. With shooting undertaken in Sydney and New York the film leaves a lively impression of the problems of running an opera
