The New Riga Theatre, since 1993, Under the Leadership of Director Alvis Hermanis (1965)

Director Alvis Hermanis and the New Riga Theatre have been the most visible players in the Latvian theatre scene for close to thirty years. As an actor, stage designer, and director of theatre plays and operas, Hermanis has introduced audiences to ground-breaking new forms of theatre and probed the identity of the 21st century Latvia, revealing the lives of his contemporaries and bringing tradition back into the fore. Hermanis and New Riga Theatre are the world’s best-known trademarks of contemporary Latvian theatre, with Hermanis’ work and, recently, political opinions being of immediate urgency and interest to audiences across Europe.
