Opera romcom to film in Scotland

Scotland Danielle Macdonald (Patti Cake$) and Joanna Lumley are to star in Falling For Figaro, a romcom feature set to shoot in Scotland in early December. 

The film centres on a fund manager (Macdonald), who gives up her career and relationship to follow her dream of becoming an opera singer, a move which sees her under the tuition of a renowned singing teacher – in the Scottish Highlands. 

Falling for Figaro is a UK/Australia co-production; filming takes place in Scotland with post in Australia. Screen Scotland and Screen Australia are backing the feature. 

Ben Lewin directs from a screenplay he wrote with Allen Palmer; producers are Arabella Page Croft and Kieran Parker of Black Camel Pictures, alongside Philip Wade and Judi Levine.
