Eimuntas Nekrosius passed away.

Eimuntas Nekrosius, the world-known Lithuanian theatre director, passed away. 

It's a tragedy for everyone. A huge loss for all his friends and colleagues.

Rimas Tuminas said: "Eimuntas Nekrosius was the great director and man. He was a philosopher, a man of honour. His fantasy, the scale of his talent was enormous. It was an époque in the world theatre. He influenced the whole international theatre process. He brought up brilliant students".

We are deeply saddened. Our deepest sympathies to his family.
