Jessye Norman: A Portrait DVD

Directed by Andre Heller



Filmed by German film maker Andre Heller against the backdrop of Yves Saint Laurent's garden paradise in Marrakech, this documentary gives a deeply personal portrait of one of opera and lieder's most respected exponents.

The film also includes 14 specially-staged performances of pieces by Mozart, Richard Strauss, Schoenberg, Ravel, Schumann, Mahler, Wagner, Purcell, Schubert and Berg.

Amongst many other subjects, Norman discusses her childhood and family; her idols; working relationships with different conductors and directors; how she chooses repertoire; her career path; her political views; relationships; attitudes towards religion; and her aspirations and dreams.
