To Amsterdam for a week in the life of the young artists who have recently joined the Dutch National Opera Studio led by internationally renowned soprano Rosemary Joshua. The film, directed by Edwin Vermeulen, follows this group of young artists, who come from as far away as South Korea, as they discover Amsterdam’s imposing stage. We eavesdrop on audition training and preparations for the Dutch premiere of Denis and Katya with director Ted Huffman. We enjoy these young talents as they perform and also hear their voices in other ways - through the life stories that have led them from across the world to Amsterdam in 2021 to prepare for the challenging life of an opera singer.
