Vilnius City Opera - a team of independent artists, which started in 2006, when director Dalia Ibelhauptaitė[1] , conductor Gintaras Rinkevičius and scene artist Juozas Statkevičius joined their forces together in staging opera by Giacomo Puccini La bohème. The artists called themselves bohemiečiai (the Bohemians) since then. After 8 years of activity the troupe acquired a status of professional theatre and became a Vilnius City Opera. Vilnius City Opera has no building and staging operas in Vilnius Congress Concert Hall. One of the main aims of VCO is to make opera genre more widely available, to liberate it from elitist stereotypes and snobs. [2]

Operos atstovai negali būti užsidarę snobai, laikantys save elitu, LRT KLASIKAI sako režisierė Dalia Ibelhauptaitė. Anot jos, spektakliai turi kelti ir provokuoti dialogą: „Mano tikslas niekada nebuvo, kad visi sakytų, kokie nuostabūs mano spektakliai. Mano tikslas – kad mano spektakliai keltų aktualias problemas, žmonės galėtų ginčytis.“

Many people have been waiting for the new Vilnius City Opera project “e-Carmen” with anxiety, not expecting that you can squeeze the emotions of Carmen into an electronic cage. However, they achieved the impossible – the electronic version of Carmen at Compensa Hall, conducted by Richard Šumila, was as charming as the original with ever-growing curiosity throughout.
