On September 09-10, the cul­ture and life­style of the Coun­try of the Ris­ing Sun will flour­ish be­fore your eyes. The fes­ti­val will in­tro­duce Ja­pan the way it is now: the syn­the­sis of tra­di­tions, moder­nity and col­or­ful entertainment. Among plenty of shows, cre­ative work­shops, pre­sen­ta­tions, con­tests, ex­po­si­tion stands, ex­hi­bi­tions, films and an­i­ma­tion screen­ings, ev­ery­one will find their own sub­ject to get to know Ja­pan.

September 15-17, In­ter­na­tional Street The­atres Fes­ti­val “Mo­saic”, var­i­ous venues in Vil­nius

The street the­ater – is a tool that can reach any au­di­ence, at any place, lan­guage not be­ing the main ex­pres­sion. The fes­ti­val has many thou­sands of ways of ex­pres­sion. Var­i­ous as a mo­saic, which is enough to tilt slightly, and it al­ready shows a dif­fer­ent pic­ture. But most im­por­tantly, the goal is the same – to spread beauty and glad­den the eye. The en­trance to the fes­ti­val is free of charge.

September 06-24, In­ter­na­tional Early Mu­sic Fes­ti­val “Banchetto Mu­si­cale”, var­i­ous venues in Vil­nius

This September, loyal au­di­ences and vis­i­tors to Vil­nius will be able to at­tend the 27th Banchetto mu­si­cale Early Mu­sic Fes­ti­val. Eleven con­certs have been or­ga­nized where ev­ery­one is sure to dis­cover their fa­vorite soloists, en­sem­bles, composers and works. Mu­sic from dif­fer­ent lands and per­form­ers from var­i­ous cor­ners of Europe and the world gather in Vil­nius each year for this an­nual ban­quet of early mu­sic. The fes­ti­val’s or­ga­niz­ers have cho­sen the in­ter­na­tion­ally cel­e­brated 500th an­niver­sary of the Re­for­ma­tion as this year's theme. Post­ing his the­ses on the doors of the Wit­ten­berg Cathe­dral in 1517, Martin Luther started an up­roar which ul­ti­mately reached to the spread­ing of a move­ment that grew into an en­tire epoch, and con­trib­uted sig­nif­i­cantly to the his­tory of hu­man­ity. Many of this year’s fes­ti­val con­certs will thus in one way or an­other touch on the legacy of the Re­for­ma­tion, re­mind­ing us of the sig­nif­i­cant mu­sic cre­ators from that time. The fes­ti­val's con­certs will take place on September 7–23, 2017 at the Na­tional Mu­seum, Palace of the Grand Dukes of Lithua­nia, the Fran­cis­can Monastery Church and Sts. Johns’ Church in Vil­nius. For more in­for­ma­tion please visit­fes­ti­
