LNSO season closing concert

26 May
Latvian National Symphony Orchestra will play the joyous overture of "Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg" and the "Wesendonck Lieder" – beautiful and full of longing, with a solo by temperamental vocalist Aga Mikolaj. In part two, we will hear Symphony No. 5, one of the best works by Jānis Ivanovs. During Soviet times, this piece earned the great composer the reputation of being a formalist, hazardous to the Soviet everyman.

Raymonda

28 May
This work by genius Marius Petipa represents the artist’s rebirth in the twilight of his life. The Master created "Raymonda" at the age of 80 as the quintessence of his rich life. The plot is about a knight who embarks on a crusade and his bride. Dances by Raymonda and her friends appear as an accolade to female beauty and the multicoloured gamut of her feelings, while the entrance of sheikh Abdu-Rakhman and his suite brings Oriental inebriation and passion to the ballet, briefly stirring up the admirable harmony of Raymonda's world. LNO production transports the viewers into the wondrous atmosphere of the Middle Ages.

31 May
The same world-famous Italian author and philosopher Alessandro Baricco (1958) who studies glass castles, silk and Homer, during his early years has much though about music and even wrote books about it. Baricco is erudite, rather provocative and even a bit quarrelsome. He loves tangled ideas and always tries to purify the objects that he is studying from trivial assumptions.
