"Lele" - a puppet theatre in Vilnius

"Lele" - a puppet theatre in Vilnius


"Lele" is a Lithuanian word for a puppet or a doll. "Lele" - a puppet theatre in Vilnius, founded in 1958 - is one of the three professional puppet theatres in Lithuania.
In 1977 the Theatre settled in the former house of Duke Oginsky in Arkliu Street in the Old Town of Vilnius.
Two halls of the Theatre (of 240 and 70 seats) host about 35 000 spectators at about 300 performances annually.
"Lele" is proud to have had famous Lithuanian theatre people B. Lukošius, V. Mazuras and A. Ragauskaite as its producers as well as to presently have the cast of 15 professional actors the majority of whom graduated from Vilnius Academy of Music.
Vitalijus Mazuras – a painter and a theatre producer, one of the best known puppeteers of Europe, used to manage the Theatre for many years.
The list of the Theatre's performances extends to 24, the classical, world-wide known fairy-tales such as The Ugly Duckling, Little Red Riding Hood, Pinocchio, Three Little Pigs, Cinderella among them.
The Theatre also stages Lithuanian folk tales and highly values its friendship with prominent Lithuanian playwrights and poets Sigitas Geda, Marcelijus Martinaitis who contribute to the success of the Theatre with their plays.
The Theatre performances are accompanied with music by the best Lithuanian theatre composers Feliksas Bajoras, Algirdas Martinaitis, Faustas Latenas and Vidmantas Bartulis.
The performances of the Theatre "Lele" are enjoyed by not only Vilnius audience as the Theatre travels a lot to other cities and towns of Lithuania. Its frequent visits abroad offered opportunities to German, Algerian, Ethiopian, Finnish, Danish, British, USA, Polish, Austrian, Indian, Kazakh, Latvian, Estonian, Russian, Slovak and other audiences to appreciate the Theatre's mastery. The Theatre also experienced the atmosphere of numerous puppet and children theatre festivals.
Currently Vilnius Theatre "Lele" is searching for novelties and new ways of expression. It does not limit itself to traditional puppet shows. The experienced puppeteers and drama theatre producers are invited to diversify the range of the Theatre's products.
Beside puppet and shadow theatre shows, there are performances where puppets act on the stage together with actors. Being capable of blending the scenery, puppets, masks, music, texts and plastics is the characteristic feature of the Theatre "Lele".
Leader of Vilnius puppet theatre "Lele" is Mr. Juozas Marcinkevichius.

Vilnius is a great place for pleasant strolls. It is green, full of cultural diversity and cozily compact. So compact, that in just a few dozen steps from the gallery, you find yourself in a park, followed by a baroque church, and off to the castle after a cup at the local cafe. Thus, in a short time you get to not just see, but also hear, touch, taste and tune into the soul of the city.
