Synopsis

Simone Young was the first female conductor to appear on stage at the world’s most renowned Opera houses; Sydney Opera House; Met New York Opera; and the Vienna Opera House. These iconic opera houses had never before seen women conductors before Simone Young graced the stage. Whilst being a woman in one of the most conservative and male dominated worlds of classical music not only make this a feminist story, more importantly, Simone´s biography is first and foremost a captivating story of a dazzling 30-year music career. All her achievements have been hard won. KNOWING THE SCORE gets up-close and personal with Simone in an engaging, luscious music documentary revealing two key themes; the long struggle for gender parity in the high art of classical music and the heart-breaking struggle for artists to be valued in times of crisis, or sometimes even at all.
