February 6-12:

Exhibition «Omano lobiai» (Paroda «Omano lobiai»); Vilnius Town Hall (Vilniaus Rotušė)  (www.vilniausrotuse.lt/en), Didžioji g. 31, Vilnius;

The photo exhibition of famous Omani photographers opened in the town hall of Vilnius reveals Oman’s culture, traditions and present-time images. At 4.30 pm on February 10, a lecture about frankincense, an incense which made Oman famous, shall be held in the venue. At 6.00 p.m. that day, in the Grand Hall of the Town Hall, an Arabic music concert will commence.

February 6- 12: 

Exhibition «The Silk Road and Ancient Chinese Art» (Paroda «Šilko kelias ir Senovės Kinų menas»); Museum of Applied Arts and Design (Taikomosios dailės ir dizaino muziejus) (www.ldm.lt/en), Arsenalo g. 3A, Vilnius;

The Museum of Applied Art and Design presents the first series of exhibitions of Eastern art, «The Silk Road. Old Chinese Art». For the first time in the museum’s history, visitors are presented with almost 100 exhibits, from the period of the dynasty of the Eastern Zhou (1046–771 BC) to the Ming dynasty (1368–1644), revealing the interaction between Eastern and Western cultures in the region where the Silk Road started.

Exhibition «Nicholas Roerich and Latvia» (Paroda «Nikolas Rerichas ir Latvia»); Vilnius Picture Gallery (Vilniaus Paveikslų Galerija) (www.ldm.lt/en), Didžioji g. 4, Vilnius;

The exhibition consists of four parts: the paintings of Nicholas and his son Svetoslav, exhibits from the Latvian Roerich Society, material from the Liepāja Museum about Roerich’s links to Latvia and Latvian artists, Roerich’s colleagues from the Academy of Art and his Latvian students living in Saint Petersburg. Yet probably the most important aspect of this exhibition would be, of course, the artist’s own specially selected paintings sent to Latvia from India in 1937.

February 6-12:

Exhibition «City Nature: Vilnius and Beyond» (Paroda «Miesto esmė:  Vilnius ir daugiau»); National Gallery of Art (Nacionalinė Meno Galerija) (www.ndg.lt/en), Konstitucijos pr. 22, Vilnius;

The two-part exhibition will present five new works by Lithuanian and foreign artists, made in collaboration with scientists, in the search for parallels between the city and an anthill, offering a glimpse at the city from the perspective of a bat, viewing robots as members of society, reflecting post-traumatic healing processes common to the community and the individual physical body, and trying to imagine gardening in a cosmic city. Alongside the new works, there will be a display of scientific research spanning recent decades.

Participants include  Kader Attia; Julius von Bismarck; Pakui Hardware (Neringa Černiauskaitė & Ugnius Gelguda); Kuai Shen; Julijonas Urbonas; Rimantas Jankauskas, Šarūnas Jatautis and Ieva Mitokaitė; Iwona Janicka; Vida Motiekaitytė; Egidijus Rimkus, Dovilė Keršytė and Justas Kažys; Oksana Valionienė, Aistis Žalnora and others;

Alexander’s Feast is one of the most popular works by George Frideric Handel. To present the oratorio in Lithuania, a theatrical staging has been chosen. Vilnius Festivals and LNOBT had a similar experience in the past, when in 2007 the stage of Vilnius was graced by J. S. Bach’s Johannes passion, directed by the American theatre genius Robert Wilson. The production received immensely good reviews from the theatregoers and the same success is predicted to the performance.

So now, «elixir in Adina’s eyes», but not in the «Bordeaux» vine brought from faraway lands by «the doctor», the cunning businessman, the fellow-countryman Dulcamara, not in the decisive «picking» and puffed «macho-way» attacking of women by Italian marine sergeant Belcore like «there are thousands of them out there waiting for me»… And not in the inability to open the mouth and tell the beloved girl straight into the eyes «I love you» by Nemorino, who only has his bicycle and photo camera and till the very end of the opera not knowing his uncle’s legacy has made him a millionaire…
