Notes & Reviews:

An intimate and in-depth portrait of one of the world's greatest sopranos, a true 'primadonna assoluta'! Yves Saint Laurent's garden paradise in Marrakech provides the lush, tropical background for this deep insight into Jessye Norman's professional and private life. Filmed by German film maker Andre Heller this DVD gives a deeply personal and emotional portrait of one of opera and lieder's most respected exponents. The film also includes 13 specially staged performances in fantastical settings of her repertoire, of pieces by Mozart, Richard Strauss, Schoenberg, Ravel, Schumann, Mahler, Wagner, Purcell and Schubert and Berg. The performances give a beautiful and unique look at the artistic world of this very special diva.
