A Long Journey Home

In the spring of 2004 international opera star Isabel Bayrakdarian travelled for the first time to her ancestral homeland, Armenia. This documentary follows her on that poignant journey as she is honoured by the cultural and political leaders of the country.

Filmed on location and recorded in surround sound, the film captures Ms. Bayrakdarian’s recitals of Armenian and classical repertoire as well as her performances of sacred music in the country’s most ancient churches.

Viewers are given the opportunity not only to hear one of the great voices of our time but also to visit a part of the world whose mystical landscape provides a haunting backdrop for the music.
