Latvian National Opera and Ballet
A word about this company
The Latvian National Opera House is home to both the Latvian National Opera and the Latvian National Ballet. In the course of a season that runs from September to June the LNO performs more than 200 performances, staging on average six new productions every season of both opera and ballet. The LNO today is a repertoire theatre. The LNO Company was founded soon after independence was declared on the 18th of November, 1918, and in the 1920s the opera company was joined by the first professional Latvian ballet ensemble. The LNO occupies a stately neo-classical style building in Riga, originally constructed as the Riga German Theatre in 1863. 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. The LNO stage regularly resounds with successful productions of modern operatic and ballet masterpieces, children's performances, and original Latvian works.
