Five incredible women from around the world who are boldly breaking glass ceilings in the male-dominated world of orchestral conducting take center stage in MAESTRA. These women gathered in Paris for 'La Maestra', the only competition in the world for female conductors, to show the world the singular talent that unites them and which, for far too long, has been considered the pursuit of only men. Personal stories of survival, passion and perseverance are woven together with the drama and excitement of this one-of-a-kind event.
