New York, NY, August 01, 2012 --(PR.com)-- Two New Titles in the Footsteps Series: Vivaldi & Bizet Available on DVD July 31st


Today, the music of Vivaldi is universally adored. His Four Seasons is perhaps the most recognized piece of Baroque music ever written. But the man behind the music was much less well understood.

The celebrated composer lived with wealth, yet died in poverty. He led the life of a Catholic priest, yet was constantly surrounded by an entourage of beautiful women and had a love affair with at least one of his young students. Our cameras travel from Venice to Vienna to discover the truth behind his tumultuous life and his celebrated music.


The composer of the world’s best loved opera died at the age of just 36 – convinced that his work was a complete failure. The letters and personal diaries of Georges Bizet reveal a personality torn between social acceptance and artistic success.

It would be five years after his death before Carmen returned to the Paris stage to rapturous reviews. The film travels to Paris and Rome to follow in the footsteps of his brief but productive life. In between it follows the rehearsals for a production in Orange, France. The great composer’s life is revealed by his principal biographer and his work by the contemporary singers, musicians and conductor of the beloved Carmen.
