    Their calm and measured life explodes with news about forthcoming concert — they are offered to perform the quartet from the opera by G.Verdi «Rigoletto», the one that once made them famous... And before they agree each will pass the way of souvenirs about his mysterious and wonderful past... Each will open the secrets of his life, unknown before... They will appear at the stage to perform their famous opera quartet and to plunge into the world of divine music.
