UNFORGETTABLE CULTURAL EVENT
THE SPECTACULAR BALL OF THE LATVIA'S CENTENARY
Riga Ball is one of the most splendid reminders of a distant era of great composers, charming social gatherings and gorgeous dresses of the ladies. In Riga, just like in the rest of Europe, balls still have an important place in the cultural life.
Riga Ball 2018 will be held in one of the most famous and beautiful buildings in the Baltic States — the House of the Blackheads, located in the very heart of Riga, the capital of Latvia. The luxurious interior of the venue will help create the unforgettable atmosphere of a 20th-century ball.
During the evening program symphony and jazz orchestras will perform, as well as the best soloists of the Latvian National Opera and Ballet, the most known Latvian Operetta soloists, the greatest Latvian ballroom and folk dancers, Boys Choir. There will be also performances from young musicians and dancers from orphanages.
