Over the course of a season, director Jean-Stéphane Bron nimbly juggles a dizzying number of storylines, from labor disputes to procuring a live bull for Schoenberg's Moses und Aron to a public relations crisis involving the head of the company's ballet. Sweeping in scope yet full of intimate human moments, THE PARIS OPERA offers a candid look at everything that goes into operating one of the world's foremost performing arts institutions.
