Three for the Weekend: Ballet, music and ice

Ballet, music and ice sculptures are among the many things to see and hear in Latvia over the weekend.

Ballet broadcast at the Moscow House

Rīga's Moscow House, an interesting venue in itself, on Sunday at 4 p.m. offers a live broadcast of the Bolshoi Ballet's Swan Lake with prima ballerina Svetlana Zakharova.

It's almost as good as the real thing, and you don't need a visa to get there.

Ice sculptures in Jelgava

From February 10 to February 12 Jelgava's Pasta sala will host an ice sculpture festival with 45 sculptures from all across the world. More than 70 tons of ice are to be used in an occasion that surely warrants some mulled wine and warm clothing.

The festival will also feature music, like the famous Carnival Youth and Lithuania's Daddy Was a Milkman. Local idols like Roberto Meloni and Lauris Reiniks will also be present.

Saxophone music in Sigulda

On February 11 at 7 p.m. the “Baltais flīģelis” hall in Sigulda will hold a concert by the Saxophone quartet and Kristīne Gailīte.

The concert will feature songs by Latvian composers, especially paying attention to Georgs Pelēcis, who is celebrating his 70th birthday this year.
