Saw a production of the ballet, La Bayadére last night - at the end of a short trip that had taken in Estonian National Opera, The Mariinski and the Bolshoi - all had been excellent unsurprisingly! The ballet here in Riga however was incredible: a superb production in a smaller sized opera house (itself an Art Nouveau gem), the size... More

When it is sold out, you can ask about standing tickets. Go to the Box Office at 6pm on the day and there might be room in the standing section. It is at the very top of the top but a fantastic view. I saw Swan Lake for 5 euros and it was excellent. The building is incredible, and even... More

Stunning opera house, great seats as it was the first thing we booked when we planned this trip six months ago - front row of a... More

There are many interesting places in the park where we wanted to capture my presence in the photo, so that later it would be pleasant to remember. And this sunny evening was really beautiful.

We booked a ballet in advance via our hotel, reserving best seats in the huse - well it was only 30 euros. It was a classical ballet but rather unknown - excellent standard, large pit orchestra and a real privelege. Bit of a dsessing up atmosphere whch was appropriate, without being stuffy. A memorable experience.

Great opera!! Great decor, great performers, great costumes! Three hours seems long, but it was not long at all. (2 pauses). I liked the modern way of presenting this opera.
