FALLING FOR FIGARO: Danielle Macdonald On Opera In The Scottish Highlands


Interview by Paul Salfen

IMillie (Macdonald) is a brilliant young fund manager, who decides to leave her unfulfilling job and longterm boyfriend behind to chase her lifelong dream of becoming an opera singer – in the Scottish Highlands! She begins intense vocal training lessons with renowned but fearsome singing teacher and former opera diva Meghan Geoffrey-Bishop (Lumley). It is there she meets Max, another of Meghan’s students who is also training for the upcoming “Singer of Renown” contest. What begins as a brutal competition between Millie and Max slowly turns into something more…

Arianna Bocco, President of IFC Films said, “We’re thrilled to work with Ben again after the success of THE CATCHER WAS A SPY. We see the same clear path to audiences with yet another heartfelt and supremely entertaining film in FALLING FOR FIGARO.”

Director Ben Lewin added, “I associate IFC Films with classy and exciting products. I am very proud to be working with them again, particularly on such a different and delightfully fun movie.”
