#StandwithUkraine: Latvian National Opera condemns the Russian invasion of Ukraine
“Dear colleagues at the Lviv National Opera,
In solidarity with the people of Ukraine, the Latvian National Opera and Ballet has announced that it will only work with guest artists who clearly, unequivocally, and publicly express their condemnation of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. We also have urged artists whose concerts at the Latvian National Opera are organized by other event producers to do so publicly, otherwise, the lease agreements already signed will be terminated.
Here is our statement: https://www.opera.lv/…/latvian-national-opera-and…/
From 25 February, the Latvian National Opera Orchestra plays the Ukrainian national anthem before every performance. Also the Ukrainian flag is flowing in front of Latvian National Opera house.
Wishing you all the strength!”
We are extremely grateful to Latvijas Nacionālā opera un balets for clear position condemning Russia’s military aggression against Ukraine and for your willingness to work only with artists who share the same beliefs.
Thank you for support!
It is very important and valuable for us!
