Pick your favorite National Theater production for Friday night broadcast

Like most cultural institutions, the Latvian National Theater is closed during the state of emergency in the country. But the theater now offers to watch its productions online, and what's more everyone is invited to vote for their favorite pick.

Votes are being held on Wednesdays on the theater's social media accounts as to which theater production should be broadcast. The winner will be streamed live at 7 p.m. on Friday and available on demand until Sunday night.

As of now, the theater has 10 stagings for the next five weeks, including Kirils Serebreņņikovs' version of Dead Souls as well as a musical performance by Raimonds Pauls', and others. 

Many culture industry players are trying to ensure online access to their work. LTV's Theater.zip online selection features some important productions by the National Theater, while Latvian Radio's Radio Theater archive features the voices of many of its actors.
