“This charming short film takes us deep into the forest to enjoy a nocturnal opera, performed by an ensemble of beautifully animated woodland creatures. Maestro by Illogic Studios and Bloom Pictures is a gorgeous short film, starring an ensemble of animated woodland creatures that gather under a full moon one night to sing a Bellini anthem.” Maddy Shaw Roberts, ClassicFM, 01/07/2020
