Being a female conductor means being an exception, even today. When a woman stands on the podium she is, in most cases, somehow “the first:” the first to lead a world-class orchestra, the first to conduct the “Last Night of the Proms” in London, the first to win the German Conductor Prize. For decades, this sensational character has been tradition. At the same time it seems that the world of the maestro is now in a state of upheaval. But why is it that there have been so few female conductors in the international music scene? To take a closer look at this phenomenon, the 55-minute film "Maestras" follows several female conductors at the 2016 Lucerne Festival, which with the motto “PrimaDonna” dedicated itself to this theme.
