This hour-long documentary features an in-depth behind-the-scenes look at the rehearsal process for “Don Pasquale” at the Aix-en-Provence festival in 1990, focusing on the contribution of the production’s leading soprano, Barbara Hendricks. Ms. Hendricks provides many comments about her life and studies, in addition to her thoughts on rehearsing/performing and on the role of Norina in “Pasquale” in particular. Extensive rehearsal footage is included, with three complete scenes from a live performance at the end of the film. In addition to Hendricks, the other primary interest here is the superb Gabriel Bacquier as Pasquale. The picture is rather grainy, and close-ups are often too close, but it’s a pleasant production that transports the viewer back in time to what must have been a wonderful summer for Hendricks and the production team.
