    • A young team of Italian opera singers touring Britain in the early 19th century arrive at a Scottish castle previously inhabited by Walter Scott, to give a concert of the Bel Canto works of Rossini, Donizetti and Bellini based on Scott's novels. Their stories reveal how much the romantic drama of the novels suited the revolutionary mode of the time, while their personal interaction reflects some of the operas' themes
