The Latvian National Theatre
Riga
The theatre building was constructed in 1902 on the basis of a draft designed by architect Augusts Reinbergs. Initially it housed the Second Riga City Theatre. The National Theatre was opened on November 30, 1919, and its creative program was authored by writer Jānis Akuraters. The artistic troupe was made up largely of performing artists from the Working Theatre, which had been founded on February 23, 1919.

Mer om Riga

Originated from a small fishermen village, for centuries Riga has been an important part of the trade chain between Russia and Western Europe. A lively crossroad of cultures and backgrounds for over 800 years, the historical centre of Riga has accumulated an impressive cultural baggage and today is justly included in the UNESCO’s World Heritage list.
