Do you like musical fairy tales?
Presented by the Lithuanian State Wind Orchestra “Trimitas,” this concert takes young listeners and their seniors on an adventurous trip to “The Trumpet City.” You will be introduced to the instruments of the wind orchestra, learn their human ‘characters’ and responsibilities of the conductor and other members of the orchestra. Adults will probably also spot certain ironic references to the way things are in our real life society and state. Every group of instruments in “The Trumpet City” will metaphorically represent our own society. The conductor will act as a pointsman and clarinets as ordinary citizens. Saxophones will personify the gang of local bullies, while tubas will stand on the side of the rich. Everything in this trip will lead to the one and only question: can all these very different characters live in peace for the sake of common good – that is, music and harmony?
You may wish to shake hands with the ever-serious pointsman on duty – conductor Ugnius Vaiginis, or eavesdrop on the bankers from the Tubas’ Club, or join the gang of the city’s bullies – saxophones. Or maybe you have the guts to go on strike with the orchestra musicians and shout: “We want to live as we like! We want to play as we like! We want as we like!” Or you can just listen to music and watch the spectacle, taking delight in the contrivance and acting of Birutė Mar who also happens to be the director and playwright of this programme.
A splendid time is guaranteed for all!
