Ēriks' opera The Immured, which was premiered at the Latvian National Opera earlier this year in May, will have performances in the 2016/2017 season on October 13, November 16, January 28, March 9, and May 6.
Conducted by Māris Sirmais, The Immured is an opera about the construction of a library, and the sacrifices without which nothing great can ever be created. It’s a modern-day legend, whose sources are found in the folklore of various European cultures, as well as in modern Latvian society. The heroes of this tale are artists and masons, librarians and politicians, their love and betrayal, faith and responsibilities. The opera is based on an original idea and libretto by Inese Zandere.
