Logo of National Drama Theatre

Founded in 1940, some 280 performances have since graced the stage of Lithuania's preeminent theatre. In 1998, the theatre was granted its title as the National Drama Theatre (having previously been known as the 'Academical Theatre.') Today the theatre's repertoire consists of classical dramaturgy, the works of 20th century dramatists (Sophocles, W. Shakespeare, F. Garcia Lorca, S. Beckett, B. Strauss, F. Dostojevsky) and plays by contemporary Lithuanian writers (S. Parulskis, H. Kunčius and others). The sculpture of the three muses, by sculptor S. Kuzma, which leans out above the theatre has become symbolic of Vilnius.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
