Janet Baker – In Her Own Words

UK 2019 | 90 minutes | English | Hebrew subtitles

In her first documentary for more than 35 years, the great British classical singer Dame Janet Baker talks more openly and emotionally than ever before about her career and her life today. With excerpts of her greatest stage roles (such as Dido, Mary Stuart, Julius Caesar and Orpheus), as well as of her appearances in the concert hall and recording studio (works by Handel, Berlioz, Schubert, Elgar, Britten and Mahler), she looks back at the excitements and pitfalls of public performance. She also gives tantalizing clues to the question her many fans often ask: does she still sing today at the age of 85?
