“Letter to a Man” in Riga
From August 3 to August 7 the Latvian National Opera will see guest performances by Riga-born ballet legend Mikhail Baryshnikov who'll be playing Vaslav Nijinsky in his "Letter to a Man".
Mikhail Baryshnikov (born in Riga, Latvia in 1948) is a Russian-American ballet dancer who choreographed several iconic pieces, making him one of the greatest ballet dancers of the 20th century.
"Letter to a Man" was first performed in Italy last July to great acclaim. This year it continues its world tour, stopping in Rīga as well.
The play is a collaboration between Baryshnikov and American avant-garde playwright Robert Wilson. It is based on Nijinsky's 1919 diaries documenting the young man’s descent into madness.

Route visiting filming locations of BBC series “War And Peace” in Lithuania
The six-part historical series, according to the novel by Leo Tolstoy, was mainly filmed in picturesque places of Lithuania. It has become a true sensation in Great Britain and induced great interest of the British in Lithuania – a country at crossroads of historical events. The series has already aired,and will appear on television in other countries, including Lithuania.
There are three “War and Peace” routes in the English language – on foot and bike in Vilnius and by car throughout Lithuania. The “War and Peace” routes are intended for tourists travelling independently, however, the country’s tourism industry is expected to actively exploit them.
The series “War and Peace” was filmed in Vilnius, Merkinė, TrakųVokė, Trakai, Kernavė and Rumšiškės.
According to Lineta Mišeikytė, Executive Producer of the series in Lithuania, places rich in their past, bearing bright signs of war and peace which are abundant in Lithuania, were the reason BBC decided to film and convey peripteries of the magnificent novel in Lithuania.
“Fooling the camera is impossible, therefore the filmmaker searches for places closest to the original geographically and historically. In Lithuania, the Curonian Lagoon may turn into the lake Baikal, Kintai may become the desert of Ural, the Trakai gravel quarry – the Bering Strait (after snowing), Rumšiškės may turn into Siberia and Kernavė valleys – into the Alps. When it comes to filming projects, the most intense competitors of Lithuania are the entire Eastern and Central Europe. In this specific case, Lithuania defeated Hungary, the Czech Republic, Poland and Russia”, said L. Mišeikyė.
The series “War and Peace” brings the beginning of the 19th century to life, when Lithuania was the western periphery of the Russian Empire and survived Napoleon’s march to Moscow, illustrating the fame and destruction of the Grand Army. This is what the series “War and Peace” depicts through destinies of a few Russian aristocrat families.
