From award-winning director Ben Lewin (The Sessions, The Catcher Was A Spy), Falling For Figaro is an entertaining romantic comedy set in the fierce world of opera singing competitions.

Brilliant young fund manager Millie (Australian Danielle Macdonald, Dumplin, Unbelievable) is a brilliant young fund manager who decides to quit her unfulfilling job and end things with her long-term boyfriend in order to chase her 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 (Joanna Lumley, Absolutely Fabulous). It is there she meets Max (Hugh Skinner, Fleabag, Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again!), 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 gradually evolves into something different and deeper.

A delightful adventure into the world of opera featuring incredible music performances and an adorable love story, Falling For Figaro is a powerful tale about following your dreams.
