Anne Sofie von Otter is widely considered to be the greatest and most versatile mezzo-soprano of her generation. Filmed in Sweden, London, Paris, and Salzburg, this profile combines interviews with performance extracts and archive material, and accompanies Anne Sofie to her idyllic country home for a weekend off.

A framework is provided by one of her career highlights, her performance as Octavian in Richard Strauss's Der Rosenkavalier for Carlos Kleiber. There is footage of her on the operatic stage, in rehearsal, working with her voice coach, and rehearsing lieder.
