Filmed in Saxony, Germany and the Twin Cities, “A Life in Opera” is a documentary about American opera singer Judith Schubert that explores the culture of classical music, it’s historic and present-day roots in Germany, and the intersection of theater and politics.

Judith Schubert made countless sacrifices to pursue a career as a classical singer. Born in Minneapolis and educated at the U of M, her quest took her to Germany – the modern home of opera – shortly before the fall of the Berlin wall. Soon after she found herself at Theater Plauen-Zwickau in Saxony where she would spend the next three decades dedicated to her profession and the surrounding community. Alongside colleagues young and old, Schubert reflects on her years as leading lady and transition into retirement in this reverent look into the world of opera. (35 min)

Since its premiere in fall 2021, “A Life in Opera” has been featured in several film festivals around the world, including: the Paris Short Film Festival, Seattle Film Festival, Toronto International Women Film Festival ARFF Berlin / International Awards, Montreal Independent Film Festival, and the Berlin Indie Film Festival, where it won the short documentary award for “Best Director”.
