The Latvian National Opera is centrally located overlooking a lovely manicured park that is situated along the canal, the former moat around old Riga. Even if you are not an opera buff, there is much to enjoy. The gilted interior is spectacular, the wine, coffee and dessert "bars" have been meticulously and beautifully restored, and there is such a mix... More

The venue is beautiful- but don't just visit, go and see and performance. The artistic level is very satisfying, tickets are very cheap and they have subtitles.

For 14 euros and a three hour plus performance of Aida you can't go wrong A lovely building which a sumptuous inside though the lobby is somewhat spartan The opera was good - we could hear and the choreography was fascinating There were three intervals which was one too many - still, well worth the effort

The opera house is easy to get to by tram. The interior is so lovely and oldy-worldy. The costumes were lovely and the coffee shop in the lower ground level was just what we wanted pre-performance.

We planned to visit the opera house during our 2 night stay in Riga and ended up seeing both an opera and a ballet performance. Both were reasonably priced and easy to book in person at the box office. The opera house looks good from the outside, situated by some nice gardens on the edge of the old town, but... More

We saw 2 operas, which were very good and we liked being in a relatively small opera house. Tickets were much cheaper than in London!

We bought seats at the last minute but still had good seats at the side of the stalls, for only €16 each. The view of the stage was good although we could not see the subtitles. The production was excellent, the singers were all of the highest quality and the rest of the cast made for a memorable occasion. No... More
