We watched Nabucco with wonderful female voices. The building is beautiful inside and out, polite staff. You can get very cheap tickets for seats where you have to choose if you want to see subtitles or actors - these kinds of tickets are the only ones left a month before the play.

I have been to several performances this season, both opera and ballet, and would highly recommend anyone to spend a night here. Tickets are particularly affordable when compared with other theatres around Europe, and can be easily bought at the box office as well as on internet (don't need to print if you have a smartphone). Never had problems in... More

What a nice Opera-house. I realy loved the interior and the scene, stunning. Comfortable seatings at the balconies. The staff was very polite. The opera Il Trovatore was a wonderful performance.

We were an English group visiting Riga so we decided to attend the NY Gala evening....the building is amazing (but not the easiest to navigate - we got lost in the interval) It was lovely to see all the Lativans dressed up for the evening (we were not so dressed up) a little annoying because it seems that there were...

Wonderful, classical and top professional opera singers and orchestra simply dazzled with their top-on brilliant execution of the repertoire - something I expect at the Lyric in Chicago but don't see always in Scandinavia. Bravo bravo. And so easy to stay at: just grab a room at the nearby Elizabeth Blu Raddison. You walk across the park to the opera... More

Wonderfully atmospheric historical opera house with the galleries similar to all old opera house buildings. Well preserved building and with the great artists working there one can sample not only opera and ballet but also musicals and children's plays. Coffee shops are reasonably priced too.

As our flight back to the UK was not until late in the evening we purchased tickets for the matinee performance of Die Fledermaus. The building is apparently based on the Bolshoi in Moscow and whilst quite small was acoustically superb. There was a screen above the stage which had Latvian and English subtitles thus enabling you to follow the... More
