Caballé - Beyond Music is a musical documentary about one of the most outstanding and exceptional vocal artists of our times. It follows both the professional and private personas of Montserrat Caballé through the most important musical and personal moments of her astonishing career and captivating life. The viewer can join the Diva on visits to the most significant cities in her singing life, witness historical performances and meet colleagues and friends who speak fondly of their shared moments with "Montse" as she is affectionately called. The guide is Montserrat Caballé herself, leading us through the stations of her fulfilled life with human warmth and a remarkable sense of humour.

From her childhood in Barcelona, with loving but impoverished parents, her training at the music conservatory, made possible with the support of a wealthy sponsor, her first audition tour through Europe (when in Rome she was labelled "charmingly new" but sent home to "marry and have kids") and her first engagements in Basel and Bremen, the film starts with her tough beginnings, which - in her own words - enabled her to pursue her later career.

The documentary then follows her to the cities that saw the performances that established her name worldwide. It is a fascinating journey through the life and career of a woman who is undoubtedly a key figure in the music of the second half of the twentieth century. She returns to the famous Carnegie Hall in New York where her international career begun spectacularly and to all the greatest opera houses in the world where she has performed: the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, the Konzerthaus in Vienna, the Scala in Milan, the Royal Festival Hall in London, the Opera in Paris, the Opera in Munich, the Palau de la Música Catalana in Barcelona, the Teatro Real in Madrid and the Bolshoi in Moscow.
