"In ARIA, ten film directors have used the powerful combination of moving pictures and opera music to express themselves personally. To envelop and link these 'movie poems', which contain, in cinematic form, much of the heightened drama associated with the opera house, we have also told the simple story of a singer who decides to immerse himself in the preperation of one last great performance in a wonderful old Italian theatre; a performance he dedicates to a beautiful young girl" (Don Boyd).
