St. John’s church in Cēsis illuminates in coulor of spring

Throughout the weekends of April, it is possible to watch a musical light show in the mood of spring on the facade of St. John's Church in Cēsis. The musical show of light was first shown on Easter weekend. The audiovisual performance is designed as a triumph of light over darkness, celebrating the brightest and most beautiful event of spring. The light story was created by director Laura Čaupale and lighting artist Uldis Skroders.

Here's an insight into the light performance. The author of the video is Sintija Cērpiņa.

The performance will be repeated on Fridays and Saturdays, and it will be possible to enjoy it until May 1. As the days get longer and the evenings brighter, the musical show of light will be shown after dark.

In the future show will be demonstrated:

  • 09.04. and 10.04. - at 21:00, at 21:30, 22:00 and 22:30;
  • 16.04. and 17.04. - 21:30, 22:00 and 22:30
