On July 5th, I and my parents had some nice family time at music festival. But is not your traditional Coachella type festival – it was an opera and classical music festival. Sounds boring? Well, actually it wasn’t boring at all.
I enjoyed this event particularly because I like classical music. I love contemporary pop music too, but I don’t cringe like so many youngsters do when they hear classical tones.
This was 13th international outdoor opera festival.(Operetta festival – http://www.operetta.lt/?lang=en). The location were it was held was also really special – a historical Kaunas Castle. Around 120 artists (singers, dancers, musicians, actors) came from 6 countries (Ukraine, Belarus, Russia, Estonia, US and Lithuania) and entertained huge crowds of people (around 5000) two evenings in a row. I was so excited to hear my favorite songs from West Side Story and Sound of Music musicals come to life once again.
Bellow I put a little video together with parts of performances from the festival.
Since it’s a fashion blog let’s speak about what I was wearing. I put on my favorite long skirt and tribal print sleeveless collar shirt. I think that this shirt is perfect for festival fashion because it has this hippy vibe, but a long skirt keeps the whole outfit classical and appropriate for opera. Shoes: floral black and light brown sling-backs. Accessories: my favorite sunglasses and rings from H&M.Also, a coin necklace from Berlin. You can practically find all these things in my favorites/must-haves post. (Posting it tomorrow).
