Soprano Elizabeth Watts is the focus of a specially-commissioned film following her through the process of learning, rehearsing and performing the role of Zerlina in Kasper Holten's Royal Opera production of Don Giovanni.

The film, originally shown as part of Inside Opera LIVE, offers a unique behind-the-scenes glimpse at what it takes to learn a new role and achieve the high standards required of a professional opera singer.
