Alfredo Kraus (1927-1999) was a distinguished Spanish tenor from the Canary Islands, internationally known as the great master of the “bel canto” style. The prestigious “Opera World” magazine considered him one of the "ten best tenors of the XX century" alongside the famous Enrico Caruso, Beniamino Gigli, Mario del Mónaco, Luciano Pavarotti and Plácido Domingo. More than just a portrait, the film takes a lively and not uncritical stand on today's operatic world and includes high points from the 1993 season in Milan, Vienna and New York, as well as shots of Kraus's master class in Rome.
