The opera creators group – Jens, Åsa and Rūta met at the 2010 New Music Incubator project in Latvia, and they were united by one goal – to create a spatial opera in the dark, especially expanding the possibilities of the acoustic surroundings. The work was inspired by their interest in spatial electronics, in particular by spatial acoustic sound and its impact on imagination. The Christian idea of the seven deadly sins lies at the basis of the libretto.

The seven parts of the “Confessions” are concerned with the seven cardinal sins – lust, gluttony, greed, sloth, wrath, envy, pride. The “Confessions” unites the authors’ long-cherished ideas of creative experiments: performing music in the dark, involving other senses (smell, touch) and allegedly completely removing the visual aspect. However in the opera, the latter is really the most activated factor in the listener’s imagination – through abstract audio images and concrete pre-recorded sounds that produce strong images linked to feelings, sensations or objects.

In 2016 opera “Confessions” was awarded Golden Stage Cross for the best music and Lithuanian Composer’s Union’s prize Musical Nail of The Year. Opera was presented in various concert halls, theatres and as part of different festivals in Lithuania, Sweden, Germany and Netherlands.

Instructions for spectators
The spectators will sit blindfolded in the dark (blindfolds will be handed out before the performance). The sensations of the audience will be actively provoked. There is the only special “Pink chair” in the audience, it is free of charge, and the person who will win a competition will get it. The occupant of the seat will experience a set of extreme acoustic surroundings, smells, tastes and touches. Those who wish to get this seat need to make a sincere confession of one sin until June 10, 2018 on The person will be contacted and he/she will have to sign a contract.
