On a once quiet street opera arias resound from a house every morning at six, reverberating around the street until evening. The neighbours are desperate. The mysterious owner of the house who plays these arias has terrorized the surroundings in this unusual way for 15 years. Rumours about her abound. No one knows exactly what she actually does. There are rumours that an old dispute with neighbours and dogs barking are behind it all, having caused the occupant of the singing house headaches. Since justice has failed, she has decided to exact cruel revenge. Revenge that has lasted for 15 years. She allegedly rarely leaves home. Some say that she doesn’t live in the house at all and lives in another city. The haunted “singing house” is allegedly in fact empty. She supposedly monitors her suffering neighbours through a camera from the comfort of another home. Others theorize that she is dead and the mystery concerning the "musical house" can be explained mystically. The Singing house by Slovak director Sláva Daubnerová is based on real events, but wants to look at it with a Marthaler detachment as the musical story of a small community of people and individuals who for unclear reasons one day turn against the community.
