Behind the scenes with soprano Elizabeth Watts

Elizabeth Watts as Zerlina

What does it take to sing in Mozart's Don Giovanni?


Soprano Elizabeth Watts's turn as Zerlina at the Royal Opera House earlier this year was one of the highlights of Kasper Holten's production.

This 30-minute documentary follows her as she gets to grips with the role, from the first rehearsals to the moment she stepped onto the stage – it's a fascinating glimpse of life as an opera singer.
