On 28 January 2018 the characters of ancient records will come to life at the Siemens Arena in Vilnius (Lithuania). Vitaut and Jogaila will struggle for power and, of course, for Anna’s love. The Bolshoi Theatre of Belarus will present the national ballet Vitaut to the audience.

Vitaut by Vyacheslav Kuznetsov, based on Aleksey Dudarev’s play, appeared in the repertoire of the Bolshoi Theatre of Belarus in 2013 and immediately became a kind of hallmark of the Belarusian ballet.

Critics always give generous praise to the performance, but the main thing is that this ballet catches the fancy of audience. ‘People always want their work touched the strings of the human soul, provided food for thought’, said People's Artist of Belarus and choreographer of Vitaut Yury Trayan. Also he speaks without reserve: you shouldn’t ‘become absorbed’ in this ballet as it is a history textbook. We created a choreographic legend about prince Vitaut. It based on historical events, but it is still the legend.

In the evening of 28 January Vitaut and Jogaila, Anna and Jadwiga will come to life to show the exciting story in which myths and legends, love and hate, betrayal and loyalty, friendship and malice, enmity and peace are interlaced...

We would simply add, that on 28 January Vitaut will feature Anton Kravchenko as Vitaut, Irina Eromkina as Anna, Aleksandra Chizhik as Jadwiga, Egor Azarkevich as Jogaila, Dzmitry Shemet as Keistut, Olga Gaiko as Biruta, Takatoshi Machiyama as the Black Man, Konstantin Geronik as the Fool.
In 2014 Republican Vitaut was highly commended by jury of the 3rd Republican Theatre Contest "National Theatre Prize". The production won in three noninations: ‘Best ballet performance’, ‘Best acting in ballet performance’ (Liudmila Khitrova), ‘Best choreographer in ballet performance’ (Yury Trayan).
In 2015 the company of the Bolshoi Theatre of Belarus was bestowed the special prize of Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko-For Spiritual Revival Awards.
In 2016 Vitaut was successfully performed on the stage of the Bolshoi Theatre in Moscow within the Days of the Republic of Belarus Culture in Russia.
