Metalopera “KURBADS. Kēves dēls” second time – 23rd August in Riga!
Heavy metal multimedia spectacle “Kurbads: Son of the Mare” returns!
The heavy metal opera is based on the adventures of the legendary Latvian folk hero Kurbads. Stories of willpower, personal growth and battles with internal and external demons all intertwine in this beloved legend and are as pertinent today as ever before. The production is a 21st century interpretation of this tale and to this day, has been performed only once, in the summer of 2017 in Limbaži, Latvia. The show became one of the cultural highlights of the year in Latvia and garnered both public affection and critical acclaim.
