• Ever since her acclaimed début in the role of Kundry at Bayreuth in 1983 at the very latest, Waltraud Meier has been one of the top-flight Wagner performers of our time, and setting standards in the meantime in the Italian and French repertoire, too
• In this present film document, we experience her in conversation backstage, a fascinating personality who enjoys her professional life and takes an active part in planning it
• Presenting her on stage and in rehearsal as Didon, Ortrud, Leonore, Amneris, Komponist, Sieglinde, Kundry, Marie, Venus, Isolde and as a Mahler lieder singer
• Featuring Daniel Barenboim, Plácido Domingo, Siegfried Jerusalem, Peter Seiffert, Matti Salminen, René Pape, Hans Sotin, Jürgen Flimm
