Writer Wladimir Kaminer looks behind the scenes of the Dresden Semperoper for 3sat. For one year he accompanies the work on a production from the first ideas to the premiere. How do the directors, musicians and singers work together, like the trades involved? Which problems need to be overcome? Kaminer penetrates deep into the cosmos of the Semperoper. He fevers with, as a leading actor fails, or when suddenly the entire opera must be evacuated. The fact that, on the evening of the premiere, in spite of everything, "the rag goes up", is in the end a miracle for Kaminer.
