In the theatrical educational musical fairytale the “City of the Trimitas”, the children are introduced to the musical instruments of the orchestra and their human “characters”, and learn about what the conductor and other members of the orchestra are usually responsible for. However, older audiences also discover a special element for them – a mildly ironic parallel to state and society-specific issues. In the “City of Trimitas“, each group of orchestral instruments is a metaphorical representation of our society. The conductor will become the traffic regulator, the clarinets will be ordinary townspeople, the saxophone group will represent the town’s muffs, and the pipes will defend the interests of the rich. The key question of the musical journey through the “City of Trimitas“ is: can different people come together in harmony for the common purpose of music and harmony?
Do you want to shake hands with the conducting and always serious traffic regulator, hear the secrets of the Tube club bankers, and join the city muffs saxophones? Or maybe you want to make a real strike with the musicians and yell from the depth of your lungs, “We want to live as we want! We want to play as we please! We Want – How We Want! We Want – How We Want!” The State Wind Orchestra “Trimitas” invites you to the musical fairy tale “City of Trimitas”. The musical dramaturgy of the latest production is dictated by the head of the orchestra prof. dr. A. Kučinskas. He selected a solitaire of works of composers T. Adomavičius, V. Sainz, I. Stravinskis, A. Romero, ch. Hasso, I. Berlin, E. Bourdeau, H. Beeftink, C. John, J. Higdon et al.
