Filmmaker Susan Froemke's new documentary "Yannick — An Artist's Journey" traces the career path of Canadian conductor Yannick Nézet-Séguin, which took him from a 10-year-old with promise to his current post at the pinnacle of the opera world, as music director of the Metropolitan Opera. The film explores Nézet-Séguin's personal roots via interviews with family members and home movies. Behind-the-scenes footage shows the young superstar conductor in rehearsal with Met soprano Diana Damrau for "La Traviata," and follows him to some of his other musical bases in North America.
