Opera Heartbeats is a narrative video art – short about up-and-coming Latvian opera singer Kristine Opolais’s emotions before, on and after the stage. The main goal of the crew is to inspect opera as classical art from different point of view. To achieve that we’ve managed to interact a personality of a young and talented opera artist, vivid personality with dynamic editing style and electronic music which is far from opera as such.
The short consists of five episodes reflecting an evolution of artist’s emotions that are all bonded with events in her professional and personal life:
Project was made by internationally represented crew: idea and production – Latvia; video artists – Latvia, Norway; music – Latvia, Finland, Italy. Episodes are filmed on Canon EOS 7D. Music is electronic, classical music and Kristine’s voice mix. Two artists had worked on a project. Norwegian artist Endre Tveitan shows several video images composed into one ever changing video picture. Gints Apsits experimented with colour and ink saturating the whole image.
