The country will be represented by a modern opera-performance "Sun and Sea" by Rugilė Barzdžiukaitė, Vaiva Grainytė and Lina Lapelytė, Lina Vaitiekūnaitė of Vilnius Academy of Arts said.

According to the statement, the opera's main character is a modern society of vacationers wearing bright swimsuits, lying on the tons of sand covering the floor, sunbathing and signing.

The opera-performance will be turned into a four-hour spectacle which will also include foreign performers.

Held biannually since 1895, the Venice Biennale is considered one the most prestigious modern art exhibition in the world.
