Valkyrie Limited

Valkyrie Limited
Director: Dāvis Sīmanis

Latvia, 2009, 52min., documentary
Love, hate, power and greed are just a small spectrum of human characteristics encoded in Richard Wagner’s the Valkyrie. It is universal opera and therefore creates a massive challenge to an artist’s imagination. “Valkyrie Limited” is an investigation of the director’s mentality into and beyond the reality of staging the “Valkyrie” at the Latvian National Opera. Taking the “Valkyrie” phenomenon to an abstract level, the film seeks the fragile link between a pragmatically constructed performance and the world of the unconsciousness that lies within the music and the narrative.
