“Spreideits” by Anna Brigaderes was staged at the Daugavpils theater in Latvia

The plot of Anna Brigadere’s fairy tale is well known to everyone, so the creative team is sure that the audience will be happy to indulge in the unusual adventure in the theater and will easily understand what is happening on the stage even without prior knowledge of the Latvian language. The performance is enriched by the music composed by Artūrs Uškānas, leader of the ethnorock group “Laimas muzykanti”, while the Latvian sound gives the performance an extra spark of sincerity and humour.

Everyone is invited to the show, both native Latvian speakers and those who just want to get to know it better.
