Official synopsis: John Malkovich impersonate with great talent Giacomo Casanova in this movie that was adapted from “Histoire de ma vie”, the memoirs of the greatest seducer of all time. Veronica Ferres, the German star, plays the role of his prey. Thus, the story of Casanova is told both on stage, in a chamber-opera play, and in live action. We witness his adventures, his passions and his fear of death. What makes this project unique is the reunion of the world’s best opera singers: Jonas Kaufmann, Florian Boesch, Miah Persson, Anna Prohaska, Topi Lehtipuu, Kerstin Avemo, Kate Lindsey, Barbare Hannigan.
