The Opera House is very preserved and classy - like a big Opera Houses in Europe with 3 balconies and sitting boxes all with red and gold..
The ballet was nice with excellent prima ballerina

While in Riga, we went to see a performance of the ballet 'Swan Lake' at the Opera House. The opulent surroundings, with beautiful mouldings, decorative gold leaf, huge chandelier and comfortable seating, set the scene. The ballet itself was a feast for the senses. The costumes were rich and colourful and the dancing superb. The Corps de Ballet was excellent; the precision of their movements, perfectly synchronised with the heavenly music. It was out of this world.

We had the upper chambers to the right wing . Throughly enjoyed the show. The ambience gives you the feeling of this rich culture , and being in this opera house itself feels so magical. The performers are top class, of the highest international level. The composer with his symphony orchestra does a terrific work. The complete show was translated in english for the non italian speaking audience. The place also has an amazing cafeteria which one can access in the break time.
