Running time: 3.30 hrs.

“The first thing to say about English National Opera's new Puccini production is that it is stunningly pretty. The second thing to say is that, well, it is stunningly pretty. And the third thing… Forget the opera – admire the stage pictures. This Butterfly is so visually entrancing it doesn't matter what the story is about or whether it touches the heart. From the first note to last, the eyes have it”, – wrote Financial Times after the premiere in London. The director of this production Anthony Minghella was a laureate of eight Academy Awards, known to the world as a famous director and screenwriter of The English Patient, The Talented Mr. Ripley, The Cold Mountain. The production of Madam Butterfly at the English National Opera marked director’s debut in the field of opera and proved to be highly successful. It won the prestigious Lawrence Olivier prize as the best opera premiere of 2005 and was presented in Vilnius after six months, on 23 March, 2006 – it was soon named one of the best opera productions of all times to be shown at the LNOBT. Speaking of the differences between productions in London and Vilnius, the director himself claimed the latter was deeper, more subtle, revealing more meaning and poetry.

The exceptionally emotional singer, the unrivalled legend of the chanson genre, was often called the sparrow of Paris, and to the French she remains as the national pride and treasure of their country.

Sergei Prokofiev’s music composed for the ballet is considered to be one of his best works, and his Cinderella has been produced many times in various theatres. On our stage the version of this beautiful fairytale is presented by the pupils from the Ballet Department of the National M. K. Čiurlionis School of Arts.

The current production of Eglė the Queen of Grass Snakes was established by the creative team from United Kingdom. The most important goal of choreographer George Williamson was to retell the almost mythical story in a coherent and understandable manner: “My starting point was the shocking upshot of the story, when Eglė turns herself and her children into trees.” The choreographer strived to reveal Eglė’s transformation from a naïve girl at the beginning of the ballet into a mature woman who is able to make fatal decisions in the finale: “I wish this production to be close to everyone’s heart. It should be suitable not only to adults, who would maybe enjoy a more abstract scenic language, but also to children and teenagers.”

Melodies from Lehár’s operettas are instantly recognizable by their unique Austrian, Hungarian and French spirit. Waltzes, polkas, marches, mazurkas, can-cans – passionate and untamed, they won’t allow the member of the audience to simply enjoy them as one would do with melodies by Johann Strauss. This music lights up the fire, sweeps you off your feet and refuses to let you go. Everyone remains enchanted, both on and off the stage.

Don Quixote is one of the favourites of the audience, and not only at the LNOBT. Of course, it probably wouldn’t be very wise to seek the wisdom and profound images created by M. de Cervantes in this ballet, however, the work is not striving to be too serious anyway. Rich, scintillating choreography and melodious, temperamental music filled with Spanish motives is a wonderful entertainment that always brings many merry moments to its viewers. It is a ballet that reminds us of fireworks.

Never before have I felt such responsibility and been so uplifted while producing a theatre performance: after all, the love story of Barbora and Žygimantas Augustas is genuine, sorrowful and controversial. No one knows the exact turns within the story and different chronicles contain only bits and pieces, thus I was enjoying a certain freedom of creativity. The whole action is transposed into an abstract scenery, the characters are wearing stylized costumes of the epoch. I am creating live theatrical action through gentle idealization of the love story, slightly personalized interpretation of facts and my own feminine intuition. I’m not really interested in finding a modern form of the production – the main concern is the action itself, where fates of people are closely intertwined. (Choreographer Anželika Cholina)

“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.

“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!

Carmen is the most frequently staged opera in the world: ever since it premiered 140 years ago at the Opéra-Comique in Paris, it has remained unsurpassed by any other operatic work when it comes to the number of productions. The intriguing story of a gypsy from Spain, who bravely chooses death in the name of liberty and love, is one of the most impressive contemporary myths dealing with the mysterious nature of a Woman.

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was overjoyed when Kurfürst of Bavaria and Pfalz commissioned him to write an opera for the palace carnival in Munich. Written in a few weeks, the new work Idomeneo, re di Creta was performed in January 1781 and proved to be massively successful. It was Mozart’s first mature opera, which was never produced again while the composer was still alive.

On the stage of the LNOBT Idomeneo was introduced by British director Graham Vick, known for his productions that offer radical interpretations of classical works. According to the director himself, this work is not intended for experts of Mozart – this epic breakthrough piece by the genius composer should mostly appeal to younger audience, which didn’t spend much time appreciating the genre of opera.

And yet, the most beautiful image was created by the hundreds of little candles, beaming through the darkness of the branches…” This is how The Nutcracker and the Mouse King, written by the German romantic writer Ernst Theodor Amadeus Hoffmann, begins. It inspired Piotr Tchaikovsky to create an incredibly beautiful music for ballet that manages to charm both children and their parents. Even today, around Christmas time a real The Nutcracker fever is always shaking up theatres all over the world!

What were the reasons behind the popularity of this most Viennese operetta? Mistaken identities, flirtatious moments at the ball, elegant lightness of being and charming confusion, as well as spellbinding melodies – even the most sophisticated appreciators of opera claim that Die Fledermaus is indeed a perfect work of art!

“Can you imagine: I’m sitting in a cozy cafeteria on the shore of Danube and looking through some old photographs… We should make a ballet using Strauss’ music, which would contain as little of depression as possible, and a lot of irony and glamour” – such was the note sent to choreographer Andrej Melanjin by designer Vyacheslav Okunev. And voilà, ballet The Blue Danube created by these two artists that are well-known to the Lithuanian public, is already on the stage in Vilnius. The new edition of the libretto allows us to visit the end of the 19th century, the time of fascinating discoveries, while the scintillating music by Johann Strauss and a lovely storyline filled with love intrigues (with a few biographical motives from the life of the King of Waltz) reminds us of a wonderful fairy tale.
