Twelve-year-old Michelle Marin doesn't like her piano teacher. Monsieur Bizet is irritable, forgetful, aloof - distracted by a failing marriage and the rigors of composing his new opera. But as the composer begins to tell Michelle the story of the gypsy Carmen, her imagination is captured. For, just as in Bizet's opera, her soldier father is stationed in Seville...and she fears he will never return. Set in Paris in 1875, Bizet's Dream is the story of an unusual friendship between two people who share the ability to feel life deeply and a beautifully filmed testament to the power of music to set those feelings free.
Rich and successful, a dashing young musical superstar so adored that women faint when they meet him in the street, Franz Liszt is restless. He knows that something is missing in his glamorous life as the world's greatest concert pianists. He meets Josy, a naturally gifted young Gypsy street musician, and subsequently wagers that he can turn Josy into a world-class musician. The bet turns into a mighty struggle of wills - the worldly sophisticate against the resourceful Gypsy boy and a conflict of freedom vs. discipline, heart vs. brain, passion vs. technique. Set in 1846, Liszt's Rhapsody celebrates the miracle of talent and the triumph of dreams fulfilled.
In a kitchen in Italy in 1862, little Reliana helps her grandmother Rosalie make pasta sauce. As steam swirls magically through the kitchen, Rosalie argues with her oldest friend Martina and tells the story of an opera composer they once both knew. Soon, Reliana finds herself transported through time back to a theatre in Rome nearly 50 years earlier. She is invisible to everyone but the composer, Signor Rossini. She watches in alarm as one of the singers puts a curse on the production and everything begins to go wrong. Set in 1816, the year The Barber of Seville had its disastrous premiere, Rossini's Ghost is the story of three women who learn that friendship, like opera - or a great pasta sauce - requires nurturing, patience, and time.
