Shakespeare’s comedy “Dream of a Summer Night” directed by Senkov will premiere at the National Theater
Riga, Sept. 28, LETA. William Shakespeare’s comedy “Dream of a Summer Night” directed by Elmars Senkovs will have its premiere in the Great Hall of the Latvian National Theater on September 30 at 7 pm, the theater representative Lolita Grāvīte informed LETA.
The director, speaking about the production, acknowledged that the first impetus for starting to work with Shakespeare’s play and thinking about what this story is about is theater in the dark. In her opinion, when the theater is empty and only a rare on-call light shines, there is something ghostly and magical at the same time.
“You step on an empty stage and ‘draw’ a show. You draw your dream that you want to embody. In the director’s work, I see something in common with the play’s character Paku, “Unusually. He creates the drama of the show. That ‘s the essence of the play – to entertain us,” said the director.
The role will be performed by Arturs Krūzkops, Kaspars Zvīgulis, Madara Botmane, Liene Sebre, Kārlis Reijers, Jana Ļisova or Laura Siliņa, Igors Šelegovskis and other theater actors. The creative team of the production consists of Senkovs, set designer and costume designer Vladislavs Ogajs, costume designer Anna Heinrihsone, composer Anna Ķirse, choreographer Elīna Gediņa and lighting artist Oskars Pauliņš.
