In the heart of the Baltic countries, Riga is the new European destination that classical music lovers must discover. A living capital with an unexpected cultural richness, the city is an open-air history book with a medieval heart, its Art Nouveau center classified by UNESCO or the new part. The Riga Opera House was inaugurated just 100 years ago with Wagner's Die fliegende Höllander.
The lyric program of this stay, on the occasion of the Riga Opera Festival, is ideal for discovering the beautiful youth of this centenary house with Don Giovanni by Mozart and The Queen of Spades by Tchaikovsky and a gala concert as part of the famous Riga Opera Festival.
The stay is also embellished with beautiful visits which will be the occasion for two excursions on the theme of Art Nouveau in Riga and leave a little further to go to the “Palace of Rundales”.
