Ēriks Ēšenvalds’ “The Immured” is an opera about the construction of a library, and the sacrifices without which nothing great can ever be created.

The opera is based on an idea and original libretto written by Inese Zandere as a poem; Zandere wrote it in honour of and as an ode to poet Knuts Skujenieks, who has also rendered numerous European folktales into Latvian. This libretto won second place in the LNO Libretto Contest; first place was won by Valentina by Arturs Maskats.
