Inspired by the subtexts of Shakespeare’s tragedy "Hamlet", Antons Freimans stages his first full length ballet. In the production Freimans tackles man’s relationship to death, and challenges the audience with a portrayal of intergenerational dialogue – a dialogue between the past and the future. The score reflects this theme as it is presented as a conversation between an old master and a contemporary composer.

Having fallen in love with Imants Ziedonis’ "Colorful Tales" already in school, Elza Leimane uses the moving absurdity and painterly paradoxes of the tales as inspiration when looking at the colourful history of ballet.
