Members of RWV Frankfurt support the renaissance of the Wagner Theatre in Latvia’s capital.

As early as during the members’ trip in autumn 2012, the then already closed building of the former German Theatre in the historic old town of Riga cast a spell over us. How wonderful it would be, we thought at the time, if life could return to the tradition-rich house where Richard Wagner worked from 1837 to 1839. This is now becoming a reality thanks to the dedicated chairman at RWV Riga, Maris Gailis.

Following the online members’ meeting in February, which focused on the theatre project, we launched a fundraising campaign and it turned out to be a success. Members of our association were extremely generous, so that the proud donation amount of 10,000 euros could be firmly pledged. The good news was received gratefully and with great enthusiasm by the Latvian Wagner friends.

RWV Frankfurt wishes all those involved in the renaissance of the Wagner Theatre continued success and is itself longing for the day of the opening. A members’ trip to mark the occasion is already firmly planned.
