Vilnis Nerets, who is in charge of smooth operation and maintenance works in the Riga Circus, is a true circus enthusiast and patriot who urges all his friends and relatives to come and watch circus shows. And it is no wonder since he has been with the Riga Circus for more than ten years, both in joy and in sorrow.
It is doubtful if there is anyone today who knows the building of the Riga Circus as well as Vilnis, yet being a straightforward and practical person, he is very laconic in his story. He is reticent and modest when describing his contribution to the daily operation of the circus, although his work is invaluable and important. To find out more about the history and secrets of the circus building he knows so well, listen to the conversation with Vilnis.
