Latvian National Opera Director Andrejs Zagars has submitted to the Culture Ministry his two-year operational plan for the LNO, featuring events dedicated to the anniversaries of Benjamin Britten, Richard Wagner and Giuseppe Verdi, as well as the 150th anniversary of the LNO building in 2013, as LNO press officer Katrina Leiskalne told LETA.

In 2014, the LNO will mostly offer Latvian music, as well as various events as part of Riga's European Capital of Culture program.

In the fall of 2014, the LNO will organize a Latvian music festival, including world premieres of Kristaps Petersons' "Chess" and Arturs Maskats' "Valentina", as well as performances of other Latvian operas.

Zagars notes that the two-year operational plan for the LNO will require additional funding so all the LNO plans could be implemented.

Culture Minister Zaneta Jaunzeme-grende (All For Latvia!-For Fatherland And Freedom/LNNK) advisor Iluta Berzina told LETA that Zagars' plan would be evaluated in accordance with the LNO audit results.
