The Devil's Bride was written and staged in 1972-1973 in Lithuania as the first rock opera. Of course, it was impossible to name it like this at that time. Anyway, the composer and jazz performer Viačeslav Ganelin, the poet Sigitas Geda and the film director Arūnas Žebriūnas were already famous in those days.

The Devil's Bride was written and staged in 1972-1973 in Lithuania as the first rock opera. Of course, it was impossible to name it like this at that time. Anyway, the composer and jazz performer Viačeslav Ganelin, the poet Sigitas Geda and the film director Arūnas Žebriūnas were already famous in those days. Singers were invited from the "street" - hippies and young bohemian youths from night clubs and restaurants.

In that scene The Devil's Bride became a sort of underground poem, too. The plot and motif were borrowed from the Lithuanian novel "The Windmil of Baltaragis", written by Kazys Boruta. Some parts came from The Old Testament, Lithuanian myths, incantations and witchcraft, also from folklore magic and alchemy. Folklore, witchcraft, magic, things that are human and those that are "devilish" are briskly interwined here. Renaissance of musicals has flourished in Lithuania for almost three decades now. The writers of musical were eager to do something similar to "Jesus Christ Superstar", "Hair" or "Cats".

They tried to do it in their own country and in their own way.
