The story is based on a Latvian folk tale about Kurbads. The central themes of human resolve, the path of self-development, a battle with one’s internal and external demons, initiation – have not lost their relevance today. This Metalopera is a 21st century re-imagining. It received only one performance in Limbaži in the summer of 2017 becoming a cult legend in Latvian culture, enjoying the critical acclaim of both the general public and professionals. Performed by the folk-metal group Skyforger and contemporary dance performers.
