The Rose of Turaida, an opera by Zigmars Liepiņš and with the libretto by Kaspars Dimiters, is a musically and theatrically revised version of the opera No Rozes un asinīm (Rose and Blood). It’s a story about the events of 1620, during which the protagonists continue to live out their passions – a story that moved conductor Mārtiņš Ozoliņš and director Ināra Slucka to portray this melodious drama as a timeless legend about Maija’s love and loyalty.
Love is stronger than death, Love is stronger than life. Life balances on a wire, And you balance on the wire of death.
If I can, with my final breath, I will bloom with the Rose. Eternity will unite us…
