DIVA is a surreal queer fantasia drawing on contemporary artists in drag, opera, and fashion, as well as classical Roman poetry. The film centers on an original ‘Aria for Drag Queen and Chamber Orchestra’ by London- based composer V.R. Alevizos, written for and performed by UK drag prima donna Divina de Campo.
The film’s visual world scrambles and re-interprets Baroque iconography, archival opera sets, and theatrical costumes with contemporary design elements and drag performance.
A cast of primarily LGBTQIA+ actors and musicians were invited from across Europe to join Divina in Europe’s most beautiful and ornate concert halls, as well as their bare-bones, battleworn back stages and dressing rooms.
