Programme Note

Paris. Bastille Day. Régine Saint Laurent, once the world’s most revered operatic soprano, is preparing for her return to the stage after six years of silence. But in doing so, Régine is forced to confront the ghosts of her past. She reflects on her fearless youth and on her past and present struggles with confidence and anxiety. Her youth is forever gone and she has to now face a new reality. Can she defeat the demons that destroyed her career, and emerge triumphantly once more into the spotlight?
