Catarina Molder and Super Diva are coming soon, bringing opera to everyone, even to those who might think of hating it!! After the success of its preceding Portuguese seasons, this innovative format, now in English, promises to take the audience on an “adrenaline fuelled” journey into the overwhelming world of opera – just “open your heart and ears and let the emotion in!”

Written, presented and directed by the Portuguese soprano Catarina Molder and produced by Opera do Castelo Produções, in association with RTP and in co-production with Unitel, Super Diva features great super operas as well as worldwide acclaimed opera guests, including Antonio Pappano, Rolando Villazón, Magdalena Ko?ená, Gaëlle Arquez, Krist?ne Opolais, Sonya Yoncheva, Luca Pisaroni, Fiorenza Cossotto, René Pape, Kasper Holten or Calixto Bieito, who share their vision of the opera world of today, without taboos or prejudices.

Super Diva wants to continue democratising this genre, taking the excitement of opera to a large audience, in a dynamic and striking format.
Each 50-minute episode covers a super opera, unveiling its plot with an animation, its history and context in the feature OPERA INVESTIGATION, undertaken by the musicologist Rui Vieira Nery, reworking its most emblematic aria with new dramaturgical versions in SUPER ARIA, directed by the Portuguese film director João Vladimiro. Images from acclaimed Unitel’s opera productions showcase the most emblematic moments. Outstanding opera guests in OPERA CONFESSIONS share their experiences and vision on this amazing art form. The human voice and other operatic mysteries are disclosed by Catarina Molder in CONSULTING ROOM!
