Three for the Weekend in Latvia: Russian classics, Innovative ceramics and Saving the World

Each week we suggest three things to do at the weekend. So here you are.

Kareņins at the Dailes Theater

Any new production by director Dž. Dž. Džilindžers is an occasion in its own right, and even more so when it is based on one of the classic works of world literature.

Tolstoy's novel Anna Karenina is one of the best-known stories in the world, but rather than being a straight adaptation, this treatment by playwright Vasily Sigarev reconstructs the destructive love triangle from the point of view of Anna's husband Alexei. 

With star actors Girts Kesters and Lelde Dreimane in the lead roles, this should be a must-see production. 

Art Nouveau ceramics

The Rīga Jugendstil Center has a new exhibition of porcelain dishes, which it says can be described by the French phrase "La belle vie" or "Life is beautiful". 

The sophisticated shape and rich colors of the dishes displayed in the heart of the Art Nouveau district allow us to follow the fashion trends among European ceramics factories of the 19th and 20th centuries, including examples from Meissen, Berlin, Limoges and Carlsbad.

Earth Hour with Jazz

As part of the global environmental awareness event "Earth Hour" from 20.30 to 21.30 local time on March 30​​​​​​, everyone is invited to switch off their lights and electrical appliances. The World Wildlife Fund, in collaboration with Tetra Pak, will hold an Earth Hour concert. This year, the concert will take place at the Sūkņu stacijā (Pumping station) venue in Rīga and will feature contemporary jazz music trio "Auziņš.Cudars.Arutyunyan", and others. Tickets are free but need to be reserved in advance due to the limited number that can be accommodated.
