This zany comedy is about a group of Italians presenting a concert, with famous singers of the time (1948) playing themselves - Beniamino Gigli, Tito Schipa, Gino Bechi, Tito Gobbi, and Maria Caniglia…along with pre-Hollywood Gina Lollobrigida!

This is a great chance to hear legendary opera stars performing. Gino Bechi sings “Figaro, Figaro, Figaro" and the "Toreador Song," Tito Gobbi sings "Prologo" and "Dicitencello vuie," and Tito Schipa "Se il mio nome." Another highlight is Maria Caniglia making the only on-screen appearance of her career, singing "Casta diva."
