Night at Lutsk Castle: how it was

back
On the night of the 29 to 30th of June it was worth it to be nowhere except at Lutsk Castle. There under the glow of hundreds of lights one could not only see and hear bands from all over Europe, but also learn ancient dances, enjoy traditional dishes and even meet with His Royal Highness Lubart.

On the night of the 29 to 30th of June it was worth it to be nowhere except at Lutsk Castle. There under the glow of hundreds of lights one could not only see and hear bands from all over Europe, but also learn ancient dances, enjoy traditional dishes and even meet with His Royal Highness Lubart. This year's "Night at Lutsk Castle" will be remembered for its three-dimensional video installation and a powerful concert by Nino Katamadze and the band Insight.

The visitors to “Night at Lutsk Castle” were met, according to tradition, by Lubart and his wife Busha. As the former city rulers, and together with today’s city mayor, they ignited the Official festival Flame and began the performance that lasted the whole night.

Traditionally the festival performers are bands that reflect medieval music and dance, often combining them with modern motifs and bright style. This year’s bands were especially colorful: the troupes of ancient dance "Berliguardo" from Poland and "Dzhoyssans" from Kiev began the performance and after that shared their skills with all comers. Then the artistic marathon was maintained by "Euphorica" (Czech Republic) and Belarusian "Irdorath"; just a few chords from these bands were enough for people in front of the stage to start dancing.

Another unforgettable show started at midnight. Everybody was treated to the living performance that was projected on the Entrance Tower. With images of transforming colours and forms, it made people hold their breath as the inventions of the talented creators came so close to reality. The 3D show was followed by a pyrotechnic show and fireworks.

The concert lasted until morning. The Lithuanian band "Zavaranis" presented more modern music than others and the special guest from Georgia, Nino Katamadze and the band Insight, easily conquered the hearts of the audience with passionate jazz, amazing voice variations and close communication with fans. The audience was charmed by improvisations and did not notice that it already was dawn by the end of “Night at Lutsk Castle”.

During the whole evening there were many artists showing and selling their creations. Everybody also could sample traditional food and drinks.
