Running time: 3 hrs.

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)

Running time: 3.10 hrs.

Der fliegende Holländer is based on an old German legend about the wretched sailor doomed to hopeless wandering across the seas until the Last Judgement Day, longing for redemption through eternal love of a faithful woman. It seems that the creators of this production are retelling the story rather simplistically, and yet a truly magical work of theatrical art is blossoming in front of our eyes.

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.

The work itself is based on Martynas Vainilaitis’ poem-fairy tale The Tiny Lingonberry, poet’s most treasured work. Exceptionally beautiful Lithuanian language, colourful music and an innovative production – what can be better than a story in which goodness wins over evil! This opera is filled with charms and miracles that surround the Tiny Lingonberry and her beloved Jingle the Dwarf.

The premiere of I Capuleti e i Montecchi was unveiled in 1830 in Venice, the famous La Fenice theatre, and was met with universal acclaim. It turned into the most famous work about Romeo and Juliet in the bel canto epoch, lyrically retelling the love story and masterfully developing it up to the tragic finale. In Vilnius, we are witnessing the first, original version of Bellini’s opera, performed without any omissions.

“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.

Co-production between the LNOBT, English National Opera and the Metropolitan Opera

Premiere: 23 March, 2006
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 song "Non, je ne regrette rien" took the world by storm, and "No, I don't regret anything" was the life motto of its performer legendary Édith Piaf. This petite, fragile woman possessed a powerful voice, with which she told stories of love, loss, passion and the Parisian life. 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.

Fairy tale about Cinderella is as old as the world… Indeed, it can even be found in the papyruses of ancient Egypt! The first printed variant of the tale was published in Italy in 1634, later other versions were presented by Charles Perrault, brothers Grimm. 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.

Premiere: 20 November, 2015
Running time: 2 hrs.

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.

The libretto of this Lithuanian opera was written by poetess Ramutė Skučaitė. She based her text on the stories by Pamela Travers and offered her own perception of Mary Poppins.
