Who we are?
We are Lithuania! Ensemble LIETUVA consisting of you, me and all of us together. True, authentic, with a long history of its own as an ensemble, genuine and growing together. “We are Lithuania!” that‘s our new motto, spiced with a new creative breakthrough.
LIETUVA is the one and only professional ensemble of dancers, folk instrument orchestra and choir groups in the Baltic States. Through our performances we seek not only to create lasting cultural value, but also to create positive emotions for our audience. Furthermore, over 78 years of experience in representing our country and its culture is something what we really are proud of.
Even though LIETUVA is perfectly capable of presenting stylized national art, the spectrum of events brings shivers to the spine. It ranges from classical music with folk instruments, authentic Lithuanian folk songs, to an exciting and festive programme involving contemporary music. Combining different genres allows to create not only high-level but original art as well. In addition, we work on joint projects with the Lithuanian Armed Forces Orchestra, the Lithuanian Academy of Music and Theater, rock, folklore, singing poetry and popular music artists.
One of the most breathtaking performances – mystery “Gods and Humans“, where traditions of the Baltic States, archaic folk songs, a hum of clairvoyant drumming and modern dance elements intertwine. Moreover, there is a classical music concert with folk instruments “Generations Symphony” that plays J. S. Bach or W. A. Mozart masterpieces. The most popular and time-tested program is “Best Lithuanian Folk” – a classic ensemble program which contains the most impressive ensemble dances, Lithuanian multipart songs, witty humorous chants and virtuoso instrumental compositions.
