On 14 and 15 February at the Railroad Museum and on 16 February at the Liepāja Theatre, performances of the “Riga 2014” chamber opera “Lysistrata” will take place. An international team of artists have created two one-act chamber operas or a diptych, focusing on the topic „Woman and War”. The inspiration behind the production is Aristophanes’s play “Lysistrata” (411 BC) – it tells of a smart and strong woman, who is able to change the world and end the war through peaceful methods.

The two chamber operas - drama and comedy - will be performed in a single evening. The authors of the project are jazz composer Kaspar Ewald and director Christine Cyris from Switzerland, as well as director Zane Kreicberga Latvia, one of the best theater music composers of the last few years in Latvia, the winner of the 2012 “Spēlmaņu nakts” award Jēkabs Nīmanis and librettist Inese Zandere – all three from Latvia.

The creative team behind the production also includes such artists as Latvian National Opera soloist Kristīne Gailīte, singers Jeannine Hirzel and Robert Koller from Switzerland, set and costume designer Kristīne Jurjāne, lighting designer Mārtiņš Feldmanis, vocal group “Putni” (Birds), a men’s choir, a chamber orchestra and conductor Normunds Dreģis.

In Basel and Zurich (Switzerland), “Lysistrata” will be performed from 23 till 30 October of 2014.
