Vladas Sipaitis


Vladas Sipaitis (Sipavičius, 1904–1992), a Lithuanian theatre actor, director, representative of the little stage, ballet-dancer, artist and movie actor, was one of the most compelling personalities in the Lithuanian theatre history. In interwar period he also was active on estrade scene. He joined the State Theatre Company in Kaunas, where he appeared in a number of character roles, including Doctor Coppélius in the first independent ballet production (Coppélia by Léo Delibes), etc. He also wrote theatre works. Sipaitis appeared with the Linksmieji broliai (Jolly Brothers) company, performed as a singer of romances, tried his hand in composing national schlagers based on the folk melodies and writing texts for them. In 1932, Sipaitis recorded the first schlagers by Lithuanian composers including Stasys Gailevičius’ tango Kaunas, foxtrot Meilė ir džiazas (Love and Jazz), Sipaitis’ Gegužės burtai (Miracles of May) and Autobusas (The Buss) for Homocord.
