“Kurbads. Son of the Mare” heavy metal opera – watch it online!

Watch the most ambitious Skyforger show of this summer!

KURBADS. SON OF THE MARE is a multimedia heavy metal experience that was performed live on the 3rd of June at the Lielezers open air stage in Limbaži, Latvia.

The heavy metal opera tells the story of the legendary Latvian folk hero Kurbads. Tales about will, individual advancement, initiation and fight against demons imagined and real all intertwine in this beloved folk tale, which remains relevant to this day. KURBADS. SON OF THE MARE is a modern day interpretation of the tale, employing the elements of nature, such as timber and fire, along modern stage technologies, bringing you the most spectacular stage show so far in history of Skyforger.

Music by SKYFORGER. Directed by Inga Tropa, stage design by Uģis Bērziņš, choreography by Guntis Spridzāns.
