The creative team of the new opera ha striven to reflect the dramatic pages of Latvian history written in the years 1939-1944, which are significant for the record, culture and the spectrum of nations who lived in the territory of Latvia at the time. The inspiration of this opera was the legendary theatre and film critic and historian Valentīna Freimane. The personal story of the central character of the opera inseparably interweaves with the significant events of Latvian and European history and opens the panorama of the era in all its fullness of color and controversy.
