We had heard of the excellent ballet dancers from the former Soviet Union, such as Baryshnikov and also Godunov, who had both performed here. As we walked around the city, we saw that the National Ballet of Riga was performing the next evening. There were few tickets left and the staff worked to get us an excellent box seat in... More

Sadly when we were in Riga there were no performances in the main opera house although we did get to see an opera in the new auditorium. The opera house is magnificent and if I return to Riga I will definitely make sure that I time it with a visit here to see something in the main opera house.

My husband and I were in Riga and stoppes by the national opera to see if anything was on while we were in town. Giselle was the next day and we paid €14 for our two tickets! They weren't the best seats in the house but it was amazing and so inexpensive. Take the time and go to a show!!!

In 2001, the new annex was completed. Using elements of contemporary architecture, it at the same time evokes the style of the late 19th century and blends perfectly with the original building. Aside from offices and rehearsal stages, the annex also provides additional performance space: The New Hall with 300 seats is an ideal venue for chamber operas, small-scale concerts... More

I saw The Barber of Sevilla and it was amazing, the actors were superb and the Opera itself is a majestic building. During the breaks you can enjoy yourself on cozy bar they have next to the opera room.

The building is wonderful. Dating from the nineteenth century is the proud of the Latvian citizen who often refers about it as the White House. It presents quality Opera as excelent and great ballet productions.
