Editor's review

Riga's Opera House was one of the first buildings to get a full make-over following the ousting of the Soviets in 1991. Why? Because Latvians consider the opera an enormously important part of their cultural heritage, and they were determined that the new Opera House would spearhead their drive towards recreating their national identity. Indeed, led by its enigmatic director, Andrejs Zagars, the Latvian National Opera has succeeded in attracting highly favourable recognition worldwide - not least thanks to the company's youthful brashness and willingness to take risks. If however opera 'ain't your thing', you can also enjoy an excellent ballet in the opulent, gold-leafed tiers of this resplendent building.

Really nice opera house! So royal! I really enjoyed the ballet and the building itself. Amazing, although i visited this opera house over a year ago, i´m still impressed and looking forward to go there again! :)

I went to a concert here 2 years ago in August. This was where my grandfather conducted his choir before the second world war. I understand that there are concerts now in his name now. Knowing I am apart of this history was very moving.
