This lovely operahouse is used both for opera, ballet and musicals . We saw a very good production of the ballet the Swanlake at very reasonable prices. Book online before you go to ensure good tickets.

Had a chance to watch Boléro as a ballet in Riga. It was really good. Not only because of part III (which featured Ravel’s “hit”) but also because of the brilliant lighting in part I and a very good scenography in part II. I would...More

I attended a performance of Bizet's Carmen in the Latvian National Opera in June 2017 and I should say that it's the most unusual opera production that I saw - but also the most captivating one. You may not like it if you prefer traditional...More

An impressive building with a beautiful park in front. The floral arrangements in the park were bright, colorful and a great contrast to this large columned structure.
