Music and visual concert “Kiss from France”


Bisous de France! Such are the French, who meet us with warm, inspiring and expressive notes of music and color. French artists amaze the world with their works and centuries-old legacy, and Lithuanian artists still draw the most subtle creative feel from them. 

We kindly invite you to enjoy an unexpected French experience of sounds and colors! State ensemble “Lietuva” presents a French-inspired program – music and visual concert “Kiss from France”. The premiere will take place on March 15th, 6 p.m. at Vilnius Town Hall (Lithuanian translation – Vilniaus rotušė), address: Didžioji g. 31, Vilnius. 

The ensemble “Lietuva”, which has surprised with its variety of repertoire so far, has prepared a special surprise for art gourmands – works by G. Bizet, C. Debussy, M. Ravel and other French virtuosos, performed with Lithuanian national instruments. Along with the music, a composition of contemporary dance will be performed, and the special atmosphere will be enhanced by the unique paintings of Lithuanian artists appearing in the video projections, inspired by the epochs of French Romanticism and Impressionism.
