Dance performance „Uncles and Aunts“

We would like to inform that the spring tour of the dance performance “Uncles and Aunts” in Lithuania has been canceled!

As you know, the ensemble „Lietuva“, like other cultural institutions, has been forced to relocate its programs due to the rampant coronavirus pandemic and the Government’s security measures in order tostop the spread of the virus.

Till June 1 tickets buyers can contact ticket distributors and get a refund.

In the spring, „Uncles and Aunts“ had to visit the following cities: April 17 in Plungė, April 22 in Varėna, April 24 in Jonava, April 28 in Tauragė, April 30 in Utena and May 6 in Vilnius. The ensemble „Lietuva“ has already postponed this program to the next year, and new dates will be announced according to the trends of coronavirus spread in Lithuania.

The whole creative team wishes everyone good health and invites to see „Uncles and Aunts“ in 2021.
