In the 18th century, no man could eclipse the fame or passion of the opera singer Farinelli. Castrated as a child to preserve his angelic voice, Farinelli tours the royal courts of Europe with his brother and composer Riccardo. The two are inseparable, seducing audiences both on and off the stage while sharing everything - even lovers - until rivalry and obsession threaten to tear them apart. Awarded Best Foreign Language Film at the 1995 Golden Globes. Nominated for Best Foreign Language Film at the 1995 Academy Awards. Supplemental materials include: a making-of featurette; behind-the-scenes interviews; and a new essay by Kenji Fujishima, printed in an information booklet and available at checkout.
