Zagars sees his career developing outside Latvia

Andrejs Zagars/LETA.
RIGA, Nov 10 - Former chief at the National Opera (LNO), Andrejs Zagars, informed LETA that he will pursue his artistic endeavors [directing] beyond Latvia's borders; projects are pending in Germany, Ukraine, Turkey, and Hong Kong.

He commented that - from what he can tell, artists are held in higher esteem in foreign countries; in Latvia, of great importance is "bureaucratic obedience".

Zagars, nevertheless, will stage two operas next year at LNO - ''Der Rosenkavalier'' and ''Il Trovatore''.
