PROGRAMMATOELICHTING

Opera for 10 cashiers, supermarket sounds and piano

This opera focuses on the inner lives of cashiers in a shopping centre: showing what lies behind their mechanical "Good afternoon!", "Thank you!", "Have a good day!", and fake smiles. Faceless, robot-like shop workers found in everyday life are transformed into unique and lively characters. Their secret thoughts and biographies are turned into short, personal dramas. The characters of different sales clerks, embodying universal archetypes, convey the predominant social landscape. The libretto is a revealing mosaic of spoken, literary language and documentary.

The atmosphere of the supermarket is established through the glimmering and buzzing installation of daylight lamps and environmental sounds, connecting the audience to the stage and the 10 cashiers. The set itself is very minimalistic. Real goods – the recognizable décor of a shopping center – exist only in acoustic and verbal form.

The monotonous beep of each item being scanned is a key sound through the whole opera. It gets louder and quieter, but it is always present. Songs that accompany the beeping are as monotonous as the process of shopping and selling. Instead of becoming the main point of the opera, music serves the thoughts of the cashiers – it facilitates their voice.

To avoid any moral or condemnatory suggestion, a critical attitude towards capitalism is expressed through humor, paradox, irony and poetry. The mosaic of different destinies is transformed into one poem suggesting the pleasure of consumption.

In 2013 Have a Good Day! was selected by an International Theatre Institute (ITI) jury for a presentation at the final of the worldwide competition "Music Theatre NOW" (Biennial for Performing Arts, Jönköping, Sweden), where the work was awarded Globe Teana-Theatre Observation prize. In 2014 Have a Good Day! was awarded Golden Stage Cross prize for the best Lithuanian Authors' Performance and two Baltic Theatre Festival prizes. In 2015 opera was awarded Main Prize of the Fast Forward festival in Braunschweig (Germany).
