RAKEs PROGRESS

Opera in three acts by Igor Stravinsky

Conductor Jānis Liepiņš
Stage director Margo Zālīte 
Set Designer Didzis Jaunzems
Costume Designer Yashi
Video -8
Lighting designer Oskars Pauliņš

This is the first production at the Latvian National Opera of composer Igor Stravinsky's opera The Rake's Progress, which title the production’s creative team has interpreted as Izvirtības hronika (The Debauchery Chronicles).

It chronicles the adventures of the opera’s main character – a boy named Tom Rakewell. It all starts with the unexpected news of a large inheritance and a trip to the city which is followed by a whirlwind of revelry and pleasure, then degradation, and finally – madness.

Inspired by a series of engravings and drawings by the 18th-century English artist William Hogarth called A Rake's Progress, composer Igor Stravinsky approached the poet W. H. Auden in 1947 (later joined by librettist Chester Kallman) and over the course of a few years an opera with the same name was created. Its première was in 1951 at the Teatro La Fenice in Venice, with Stravinsky himself conducting.

Recommended age: 16+
