I Played, I Danced – 'I Played, I Danced'

Extracts | Kalniņš

Act I. The wedding of Zemgus and Lelde (Marlēna Keine) is about to be celebrated by the Riga Castle on the Daugava Embankment. Suddenly some mummers appear uninvited, including the musician Tots (Raimonds Bramanis). Tots sings, and his song rouses a sense of freedom and love of life that Lelde has not known before. Directed by Laura Groza-Ķibere and conducted by Mārtiņš Ozoliņš.
