The A. Upītis Academic Drama Theatre (now the National Theatre), 1967–1981, Under the Leadership of Director Alfreds Jaunušans (1919–2008)

The Latvian National Theatre plays a fundamental role in Latvian culture. Throughout its existence, since its founding in 1919 until today, the theatre has gone through changes to its name, repertoire, artistic style and choice of genre, however, has managed to maintain an excellent cast and solid psychological theatre tradition.
