Plot Summary

In this opera-based anthology, 10 directors interpret 10 popular arias. Among others, Robert Altman imagines the opening night of Jean-Philippe Rameau's "Les Boréades" in 1734 Paris; Jean-Luc Godard envisions Jean-Bapiste Lully's "Armide" as the story of French maids desperately trying to seduce burly bodybuilders lifting weights at the gym; and Julien Temple stages Giuseppe Verdi's "Rigoletto" with synchronous infidelities occurring at the same hotel.
