Performance, one act

Premiere – 13th September, 2018


What is the secret of this play? Its poetic nature and longing? When Rainis wrote this play, he really missed Latvia. But we have it. Is there any place for longing nowadays? And for what? For the strength of Uldis that should be calmed with spirits? For the absolute honesty of Barba that drives her into the depths of the river? Why is this the most popular of all Rainis’ plays? 

Legendary music by Imants Kalniņš. The actors will weave the fates of their characters into the fabric of the living, presenting this play as a canon of our culture. Remembering the summer Song and Dance Celebration of the centennial anniversary of Latvia. Thinking of tomorrow. 

Replicas of authentic folk costumes from the dance group ‘Līgo’. 

Music by Imants Kalniņš, Liepāja Symphony Orchestra, conductor Māris Kupčs (CD UPE Classics, 2000).
