St Catherine’s Church (30 Vilniaus St, Vilnius)
A music and light show
Orchestra CHRISTOPHER’S STRINGS
Conductor KAROLIS VARIAKOJIS
Visit a world full of miracles where Harry Potter and the enchanted Nutcracker Prince meet!
At this impressive music and light show, you’ll find it hard to believe that you’re in St Catherine’s Church and not a mysterious forest, an ornate palace hall or in an attic full of strange creatures…
Music certainly adds to creating this sensation: the Hogwarts anthem, Potter’s waltz, Quidditch motifs and many other melodies. Their beauty enchants even those among us who take no interest in the world created by British fantasy writer J. K. Rowling, all the more so when you realise that composer John Williams, a Grammy winner and laureate of numerous other prestigious awards, collaborated on the film soundtrack.
If he were alive today, Peter Tchaikovsky would also undoubtedly be honoured with countless awards, his Nutcracker Suite having become the brightest highlight of the festive season just about all over the world.
Delight in the energetic March, the mysterious Sugar Plum Fairy dance, the riotous Trepak, and of course, the dreamy Flower Waltz to crown it all off!
Program features P. Tchaikovsky, J. Williams, P. Doyle, N. Hooper, A. Desplat
