The Conductor takes the audience into the heart of classical music, and the soul of one of its top artists—internationally renowned conductor Marin Alsop, the first female music director of the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, the São Paulo Symphony Orchestra, and the Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra. The film gives us an all-access pass to the artistry and energy that inspires her students and awes audiences around the globe.
