Mirella Freni is one of the most remarkable soprano singers in the world of opera. She had been winning over audiences for half a century with her ever fresh and youthful vocals and with a voice quality which remains undiminished.

The portrait shows Mirella Freni during masterclasses in her hometown of Modena; in an extended interview, filmed in the Teatro Comunale, Freni speaks about her extraordinary career. One of her first performances with Luciano Pavarotti in Puccini's La Boheme is shown. Interviews with colleagues and friends such as Placido Domingo and Herbert von Karajan as well as Freni's greatest stage performances, private pictures and rare material from the archive complete the portrait.
