  • More details on this film at the Internet Movie Database


In 18th century Europe the stars of baroque opera were the castrati. This is the lavish biopic of angel-voiced Castrato singer Farinelli and his composer brother Riccardo. Dramatic conflict is sparked by a test of the brothers' loyalty, when the composer Handel wants to write for Farinelli but abandon Riccardo . A feast for the eyes and ears. An exotic treat for anyone who loves the colour, the drama, and music of the world of opera.
