As you all know, Riga has many associations with Wagner and the Wagner Society of Riga is actively participating in an initiative to renovate the theatre.
Perhaps some have seen a charming flashmob on Wagner’s birthday last year, people singing the wedding chorus from Lohengrin from the theatre windows,  the chorus in somewhat bizarre and colourful costumes.  Eva Wagner-Pasquier was in attendance.
You can see this video on the homepage of the Riga Wagner Society’s website along with full details of the ambitious restoration project.
On Wagner’s birthday this year, on 22 May, they are organizing a live piano recital from the theatre.
Do watch if you can:
