“Of all my works, that which pleases me the most is the Casa that I had built in Milan to shelter elderly singers who have not been favored by fortune, or who when they were young did not have the virtue of saving their money. Poor and dear companions of my life!” (Giuseppe Verdi)
Meet the inhabitants of the “Casa di Riposa” in Milan, a home for retired opera singers, founded by composer Giuseppe Verdi in 1896. This documentary captures a world in which these wonderful singers re-live and re-enact their triumphant roles of their glorious past. A touching and often hilarious film.
