“I’ve put my entire soul into La bohème. I fell in love with it immensely. There are no words to describe how strongly I’ve fallen in love with the characters that were created”, – wrote Giacomo Puccini in his letter after the premiere in 1896. The audiences couldn’t stay indifferent to this opera as well: after the performances in Italy the theatregoers wouldn’t allow the performers to walk off the stage up until midnight. Over three years La bohème triumphed not only in Europe, but also in Africa, North and South America, Turkey. Today it is one of the most popular and most often produced masterpieces.

In the 21st century, this opera-improvisation is speaking of the universality of the story, as if trying to state that human yearning – for love or transcendence – always remains the same, no matter the circumstances. In the libretto one can find fragments from Rilke’s works of literature and letters, there are also bits from Die Weise von Liebe und Tod des Cornets Christoph Rilke. This reading of the Cornet’s story is further embellished by quotes takes from the writings of other authors, such as Homer, Johann Wolfgang Goethe, Charles Baudelaire, Oscar Milosz, Georg Trakl, Paul Celan, Jacques Prévert and Oskar Kokoschka. Through such use of quotes new subtexts and associations are born, introducing associative documentary aspects that accompany the literary prototype, and Cornet Christoph Rilke, wandering on the roads of war and tormented by painful yearning, turns into a generalized image of a Poet that connects all lands and times. R. M. Rilke’s poetic storyline is reflected in the opera, however, it serves more as a pretext, starting point and inspiration to a personal vision.

Sergei Prokofiev created ballet Romeo and Juliet in 1935-1936 – at that time he regretted his return from West to Russia and tried to get back, however, the Iron Curtain prevented him from doing so. The new impressive ballet was shunned by Russian theatres and saw daylight only in 1938 in Brno, Czechoslovakia. In Lithuania its premiere was unveiled in 1977. The production created in 1993 by Vladimir Vasiliev turned into a staple of Lithuanian ballet. The new interpretation of the eternal love story was offered by LNOBT's artistic director of ballet Krzysztof Pastor.

“Little onion Cipollino was the son of onion Cipollone. He had seven brothers: Cipoletto, Cipolotto, Chipolocho, Cipolucho and so on; all of the names were very suitable for this respectable family of onions” – this is how Gianni Rodari’s book The Adventures of Cipollino begins. The story brought worldwide fame to this winner of Hans Christian Andersen’s medal, and composer Karen Khachaturian set Cipollino to music. The brave Cipollino backed up by his little friends – the jolly Radish-Girl, the wise Cherry-Boy, and the beautiful Magnolia – defeats the evil Prince Citron and the cunning Signor Tomato. Together they experience many adventures, and the story ends very happily!

Along with Gounod’s Faust and Bizet’s Carmen, Jules Massenet’s Manon is one of the most famous and beloved French operas. At the LNOBT the premiere of Manon was presented on 18 September, 2015. The production immediately attracted everyone’s attention and was greeted with very positive reviews from both the audience and the critics. The main criterion for choosing creative team for Manon was its relation to the French operatic tradition. Thus, on the stage one can see the authentic chatter from the streets of Paris and the spellbinding charm of La Belle Époque.

“Ballet is also a symphony”, – claimed P. Tchaikovsky, who brought this genre closer to opera and symphony. In the beginning, however, such new point of view caused problems during the first production in Moscow: the performers, choreographer and even conductor thought that the material was completely unsuitable for dancing! "Swan Lake" was saved by choreographers Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov – the production presented in 1895 in Saint Petersburg was a triumph and remains up until today as one of the most popular examples of a classical romantic Russian ballet. Hardly a ballet company exists whose repertoire does not include a production of "Swan Lake". Rarely does a ballerina not dream of dancing the stunning swan Odette / Odile.
