Elvira de Hidalgo is known for being María Callas’ teacher and pygmalion, but hardly recognized for her extraordinary singing skills (coloratura soprano) and her successful staging in the operatic setting. She, who traveled all over the world and always performed the song ‘From Spain I come…’ in her repertoire, has been, on the other hand, forgotten by her country. That is why this documentary wants to rescue her figure from her anonymity and bring it to the place it deserves: the firmament of operatic divas.

Vicky Calavia

Director, scriptwriter and producer of documentaries such as ‘Apuntes desde la fila 8’ (2009), ‘Tu alma es un paisaje escogido’ (2011), ‘Espacios habitados’ (2012), ‘La palabra libre’ (2015), ‘The City of Women ‘(2016) or ‘En tu piel ‘(2018), among others. In 2013, she presented out of competition the documentary short ‘Por qué escribo’ in Time of History, a film which she co-directed with Gaizka Urresti; and a year later ‘Aragón rodado’ in the DOC. España section. In 2015 she took part again in this section with ‘Eduardo Ducay. El cine que siempre estuvo ahí’ and two years later, out of competition, with ‘Maria Moliner. Tendendo palabras’. In 2018, in the segment dedicated to short films within Time of History, she premiered ‘Luchar por Europa: la huella de Brandt’.
