Sun & Sea - An Opera-Performance  


A sunny day on a dreamy, sandy beach. A host of bodies sunbathing, singing, telling their stories, talking in unison and becoming a Chorus. At the crossroads of theatre, music, and visual arts, the visually stunning opera-performance Sun and Sea highlights the connection between realism and poetry in an emotional manner. Or as curator Lucia Pietroiusti puts it: "A chorus of songs: everyday songs, songs of worry and of boredom, songs of almost nothing. And below them: the slow creaking of an exhausted Earth, a gasp".The performance represented Lithuania in the 2019 Venice Biennale, where it won the Golden Lion for Best National Participation.

Audiences may freely enter and exit the performance venue at all times
