OPERA GLASSES

German Age Rating

Opera glasses are the essential accessory for watching an aria. You can borrow a pair from the cloakroom. Yet the cloakroom offers more than that. It’s where the patrons briefly give their own performances, sharing the latest gossip, taking selfies, and checking their appearance in the mirror. This documentary depicts the colorful hustle and bustle without commentary. Inconspicuously in the midst of this spectacle are the cloakroom attendants who watch over the foyer. But what do they do when the curtain rises?
