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.

Went to see the ballet Le Corsaire last night - amazing!! Did enjoy every moment of it! The hall is beautiful and staff selling tickets etc. very friendly!
Very good Riga sightseeing bus tour starts there. Blue cabrio bus is superb!
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.
Please let me know the repertoire of opera and ballet 26.-28.6.!
A really beautiful opera house with an impressive repertoire.
