In the musical “Veronika” the past blend with the future: the Lithuanian classic known short story “The Drowned” by A. Vienuolis gave the chance to look and again rethink the fates of today’s Veronikas one more time.

The composer Giedrius Kuprevičius: “Veronika” is a musical about us, told in a centuries old short story’s pages. This is a very modern plot where the themes of purity, condemnation, emigration, faith, responsibility, love and suicide are revealed. Not by a coincidence I wrote these words on the first page of the score: to the century of “Antanas Vienuolis’s short story and to the not changed present”.

The author of libretto Birutė Mar: “The wonderful image poetics of A. Vienuolis, original purity of the work today sounds as the longing of something that has been lost… Veronikas are born in all times, there are always people who appear to be too sensitive, as if “not from this world”… One thing that doesn’t change is that humans always suffer, commit suicide, drowns (physically and in figurative sense) from the hunger of love. When there is no love around or in the heart life becomes meaningless…”

According to the composer, the music of “Veronika” balances between opera and musical. The performers have the possibility to show their vocal and artistic abilities, the director of musical Jonas Vaitkus the ability to open up an unexpected and convincing version of the story, the conductor Vytautas Lukočius – to suggest new musical interpretational strokes. The choir plays a huge part in the play being the participant and the watcher in Veronika‘s life.

The musical “Veronika” and the work of literature “The Drowned” have some differences: Giedrius Kuprevičius offered to Birutė Mar, the author of libretto, to create a different ending and insert a not existing scene in America. The changes were determined by the belief of authors, that the fate of A. Vienuolis’ Veronika should sound as a moral reproach of disdained purity, invite to listen, to spot an innocent suffering, being punished unworthy.
