The documentary draws a portrait of an opera director, who is staging Richard Wagner’s Die Walküre. He is torn between the tragicomic routine of an opera house and his own perception of Wagner and the Ring cycle. The film witnesses the director’s drama to maintain the fragile link between a well-constructed performance and his own vision that lies within the music and the narrative and is seen as German expressionism-like nightmares.
Dāvis Sīmanis is a Latvian documentary director and film editor, who frequently reads lectures on film theory. He has received several awards in national and international competitions, and is a contributing writer for the magazine Rīgas Laiks.
