“So Cheap! A must at these prices”
Reviewed February 26, 2014

Back in the UK Opera can cost £70-£100 but here the cheapest seats were about £3 and the most expensive were £16. We went and saw La Boheme which was a great Opera. We have never been before so was good fun and especially at these prices. The shows are top quality and the regularly show Swan Lake, The Nutcracker, Tosca etc.

“Careful of the cheap seats!”
Reviewed February 22, 2014

We bought tickets to see Swan Lake for 5 Euros each. The website I bought them from was in Latvian, so it may have warned me, but we could not see anything! The music was fantastic and room beautiful but we could not see the ballet. If you are going to go, perhaps you need to pay a little more for tickets if you actually want to enjoy the show. There were also some very selfish people standing up and leaning over balconies to improve their view, which distorting ours further.
There was a reasonable about of leg room, which is good to know when your husband is 6 foot 3!

“Cheap and Excellent”
Reviewed February 15, 2014 via mobile

We saw La Boheme. Tickets were only seven euros, and the interior of the opera house is beautiful. A great evening.

“Traditional Opera House Set Near the Canal”
Reviewed January 31, 2014

My friend and I watched the performance of an all male dance group. In comparison to the Davies Symphony Hall in San Francisco, this opera house is small. However, it is beautiful and always has something going on in terms of music and dance. There are some beautifully planted grounds outside and, if I recall correctly, a fountain that is worth visiting. Also, within walking distance is the canal and park.

The Latvian National Opera in Riga is a very fine place. It is located close to the Old Town. The opera buliding is very great and nice. It is opened in year 1923. In the 1990s the opera building underwent large-scale reconstruction and restoration of the interior, highlighting and orginal decorations and matching the new interior of premises to them. The construction was finished in 2001 and the new hall has now 300 seats. I was looking on a show written from the old history of Latvia. The artists were excellent. The singing and the music was on a very high standard. If you travel to Riga visit the opera I am sure that you will like it.
