Maskats to head LNO

Arturs Maskats/LETA.
RIGA, Aug 30 - Composer Arturs Maskats, heretofore advisor to National Opera (LNO) Managing Director Andrejs Zagars on musical matters, has been selected by a special commission to replace Zagars as LNO chairman of the board.

The office of managing director has been scratched all together, and LNO from now on will be commandeered by a three-person board: Maskats, Inese Eglite and Daina Markova.

Zagars, head of LNO since the 1990s, has been offered the position of adviser, as the Ministry of Culture wants to ensure a successful completion of projects at LNO in wake of two key events upcoming - Riga as Europe's culture capital (2014) and Latvia's EU presidency (2015).
