Latvian National Opera

Riga, Latvia

The dazzling Latvian National Opera House is home to both the Latvian National Opera (LNO) and the Latvian National Ballet (LNB). In the course of a season that runs from September to June, the house offers approximately 200 performances, staging on average five new productions every season.

Architects Imants Jākobsons and Juris Gertmanis were the creative forces behind a complete restoration of this Riga jewel, which reopened in 1995. Evoking the style of the late 19th century and blending seamlessly with the main building, a new annex was completed in 2001.

While paying tribute to the traditional values of the classical and Romantic operas and ballets that are the cornerstones of its repertoire, the LNO continually strives to seek contemporary forms of expression. Under the leadership of General Director Andrejs Žagars, the LNO stage regularly resounds with successful productions of Baroque operas, modern operatic and ballet masterpieces, children's performances, and original Latvian works. The LNO is open to the world: the company has an active touring schedule with many superb guest singers, conductors, choreographers and directors frequently gracing its stage.
