Opera Backstage Tour in Latvian National Opera House
The guests of Riga have a unique possibility to have a tour in the Latvian National Opera House and to see its backstage and other rooms that usually the opera visitors donít see.
We suggest to organize the Opera Backstage tour about 1,5 h before the opera performance.
The length of the tour is about 45 min. After the tour we invite to have a glass of Rigas Shampanietis (sparkling wine) and some snacks in one of the halls of the Opera House before the evening performance.
Price: from 9 EUR /person
