BNN offers you a selection of cultural events in Lithuania for the week between October 31 and November 6.

November 2, 7 pm:

Recital of the Dancing Paintings by Viktoras Paukštelis (Viktoro Paukštelio dainuojancių paveikslų rečitalis); Vaidila Theatre (jaksto9.lt), A. Jakšto g. 9, Vilnius;

A unique personality in many senses, Paukštelis has attractively combined two of his talents, that of a visual artist and of a pianist. His Recital of Dancing Paintings is a synthesis of two arts which results in an entirely unexpected performance during which Viktoras plays piano music of Baroque and Romanticism that is supplemented by video projections based on Viktoras’ paintings – indisputably new and modern, and full of unharnessed energy, dynamism and vivid colours.

November 3-7:

European Film Forum «Scanorama» (Europos kino forumas «Scanorama»); Vilnius cinema theatres;

European Film Forum «Scanorama» is an annual festival that takes place in four largest cities of Lithuania (Vilnius, Kaunas, Šiauliai, and Klaipėda), being one of the most distinctive cultural events of the autumn season in Lithuania and the second largest film festival in the country. «Scanorama» is especially keen to preserve and foster its origins and its relation to the countries of Northern Europe, whose films have been basically forming the structure of the festival’s programme, its values, aims, atmosphere and audience from the very beginning.

November 3, 8 pm:

Jean-Michel Jarre Concert (Žano Mikelio Jare koncertas); Kaunas «Žalgiris» Arena (www.zalgirioarena.lt/en), Karaliaus Mindaugo 50, Kaunas;

The Godfather of Electronic Music, Jean-Michel Jarre is set to throw out a spectacular live show for the second time in Lithuania, Kaunas. Famed for staggering visuals and the use of cutting-edge digital technology, which has been seen by millions of people around the world, the new live show promises yet again to be a truly immersive musical journey, with Jarre set to showcase brand new music from his stunning two-part LP, Electronica, alongside classic material from previous albums such as Oxygene and Equinoxe.

November 4, 6 pm:

World Music Project «Cosmic Čiurlionis» (Pasaulinis muzijos projektas «Kosminis Čiurlionis»); Museum of Applied Arts and Design (www.ldm.lt/en) Arsenalo 3A, Vilnius;

Čiurlionis’ music embodies the core of the Lithuanian professional music. It has served as a foundation for the 20th century Lithuanian music culture. In a short creative period which lasted a little over ten years Čiurlionis’ music progressed from traditional romanticism to compositions prognosticating the modern atonal music. The performers Petras Vyšniauskas (saxophone), Olegas Molokojedovas (keyboard) and Aleksandra Žvirblytė (piano) will attempt to rediscover the tunes of the Lithuanian prodigy.

November 4, 6.30 pm:

Performance «Sophocles, Euripides, Aeschylus. The Oedipus Myth» (Vaidinimas «Sofoklas, Euripidas, Aschilas. Edipo mitas») (In Lithuanian, with English subtitels); Lithuanian National Drama Theatre (www.teatras.lt/en), Gedimino 4, Vilnius;

The Oedipus Myth poses questions rather than providing answers. What is the fate of a human being? Why do children have to be responsible for their parents’ errors/ sins/ crime? What is curse? And what is prophecy? Can one person change the bad karma of the entire family? Is a human being great or insignificant? And what about Gods? Why are they so indifferent to humans and their destructive instincts? Director Gintaras Varnas: «I adore classics, especially the Antique Period, Shakespeare, and Calderón. The Oedipus Myth is a play that combines all three parts of the myth, although written by different authors…»

November 4-5:

Exhibition «Smart Lithuania» (Paroda «Protinga Lietuva»); Lithuanian Exhibition and Congress Centre Litexpo (www.litexpo.lt/en), Exhibition Hall 5, Laisvės 5, Vilnius;

The Smart Lithuania 2016 aims to identify, evaluate and present to the public the modern changes that have been taking place in Lithuania up to the present, as well as to promote and accelerate them. At the same time, the project is intended to publicise the progress made by Lithuania in a number of fields, and to present Lithuania as a modern, progressive and smart country.

November 5, noon:

Pumpkin Day (Moliūgiadienis); Kaunas Zoo, Radvilėnų 21, Kaunas;

Kaunas Zoo creates new traditions and one of them is the Pumpkin Day. Visitors will be invited, with the help of knives, to give the pumpkins «a face-lift.» With the remake, the littlest will be called to encourage their mums and daddies to grab the creations and get to the line for the run with the pumpkin monsters in their hands.

November 5, 6.30:

Opera «L’Elisir D’Amore»; Lithuanian National Opera and Ballet Theatre (www.opera.lt/en), A. Vienuolio 1, Vilnius;

Music Director and Conductor Modestas Pitrėnas; director Oskaras Koršunovas; Gaetano Donizetti‘s «L‘elisir d‘amore» is set in an Italian village, however, it is indicated in the libretto that all action is taking place in Spain, the land of the Basques. It was probably an adaptation for some particular production. For us this misunderstanding seemed to be intentional – love does not accept any principles of geography.

November 5, 5 pm:

Kaunas Quartet and the Young Playing the Mozart (Kauno kvartetas ir jaunieji muzikantai groja Mocartą); Kaunas State Philharmonic (www.kaunofilharmonija.lt/en), L. Sapiegos 5, Kaunas;

November 5, 8 pm:

Jurgita Šeduikytė Concert (Jurgitos Šeduikytės koncertas); Klaipėda Drama Theatre (www.kldteatras.lt/en), Teatro 2, Klaipėda;
