Falling for Figaro is a romantic comedy set in the fierce world of opera singing competitions, starring Danielle Macdonald and Joanna Lumley. Millie (Macdonald) is a brilliant young fund manager, who decides to leave her unfulfilling job and long-term boyfriend behind to chase her lifelong dream of becoming an opera singer in the Scottish Highlands!

She begins intense vocal training lessons with a renowned but fearsome singing teacher and former opera diva Meghan Geoffrey-Bishop (Lumley). It is there she meets Max (Hugh Skinner), another of Meghan’s students who is also training for the upcoming Singer of Renown contest. What begins as a brutal competition between and Max slowly turns into something more.

This is a beautiful film—- wonderful characters, superb casting, great music and a story that is engaging and convincing. A film to warm your heart set in wonderful scenery and with a witty script well delivered.  What’s not to like? Even if you don’t like opera you’d be hard-pressed not to enjoy the beauty of the musical excerpts chosen in the film.

Joanna Lumley is superb and it’s nice to see her playing a crusty and serious role to perfection but laced through with real compassion and caring. 

Treat yourself to an experience of delight for your eyes and ears—and a story you will fall in love with!
