The Daile Theatre is an outstanding part of Latvian culture, with a wealth of traditions that date back more than 80 years.

The curtain on the stage of the Daile Theatre first opened on november 19, 1920, when the troupe performed Rainis' tragedy "Indulis and Ārija". The performance was directed by the artistic director and very soul of the ensemble, Eduards Smiļģis. In "Indulis and Ārija", Rainis (1865 - 1929) wrote: "We will be as great as our will". This became the theatre's slogan in its work, both when it had to fight for its existence, and when it was free to stage the work of globally known playwrights and Latvian authors alike.

The Daile Theatre is also distinquished by the fact that it is the only major theatre in Latvia to present regular productions of modern foreign plays. The theatre has also made a point of offering opportunities to young directors such as Dž.Dž.Džilindžers, Valdis Liepiņš, Dainis Gaidelis, as well as more seasoned talents, such as Arnis Ozols, Mihails Gruzdovs and Jānis Streičs. Links have been established with Latvian directors who live in other countries - Andris Blekte, Laimonis Siliņš and Gunārs Vērenieks. The Daile has performed in many other countries, including the united states, Canada, Poland, Finland, Sweden, Germany, Estonia and Australia.

The Daile Theatre has proven its sustainability with full honour in this era. The theatre has held on to its audiences and has increased the number of new productions each season. The bases for these achievements is a synthesis between traditions and the search for new ways.

Since 2002 the artistic manager is Mihails Gruzdovs.
