The fascination with opera divas -- whether one is a fan of the music or not -- will probably never wane. These larger than life women are known for their magnification of the emotional traits traditionally attributed to females -- mood swings, temper tantrums, tumultuous romantic attachments. The beautiful Roman mezzo-soprano Cecilia Bartoli seems to have eschewed these kind of Maria Callas histrionics for a more down-to-earth persona. A thoroughly modern opera star, the gorgeous Bartoli chooses to be known more for her renowned voice than for her personal life. This musical biography of the star is a rare glimpse into her private world, following the singer through recordings and performances and looking into her early years. In addition, a fabulous performance at the Savoy Hotel highlights the idea that the most important key to knowing Bartoli is through her singing.
