The Family Ensemble
Wilko Bello, The Netherlands, 2008, color, video, 52'
In a remote farmhouse a father teaches his five musical children expressive opera singing. A one-parent family with three young daughters en two sons, aged 13 to 20. Their passion is his mission. The father approaches singing opera as a sport with which you must start at an early age. Five young voices with heavy repertoire make this opera family unique in the world. Thereby they each play their own instrument. Private life, upbringing and music intertwine continuously in this house. The tension builds up before the first performances. Then they go to Vienna for audition.
