The Revenge of the Diva

Sweden | 2019 | documentary | 79 min. Somewhere in Europe

She was a true opera star who performed at almost all the most important stages, from the Royal Opera House to the Bolshoi Theatre. Magazine covers, albums and interviews were integral elements of her everyday life until everything suddenly ended. Journalists and music experts, sympathetic until then, started to increasingly criticise her and refer to her as the one who was difficult to collaborate with. Siv Wennberg withdrew herself but never surrendered. Thanks to the artist’s persistence and perseverance, the viewers can accompany her during her preparations for a great stage comeback after many years.
