The musical piece will refer to the seacoast sagas and myths that are encoded into the folklore. It will cover prehistory as well as protohistory, our tribal “Viking” period; it will also reveal the historical fight for this Lithuanian region – from the resistance to both Orders to Klaipėda uprising, the most aggressive seeking for liberation from all oppressions and oppressors.
