Great Guild

The origin of the Great Guild - one of the oldest public buildings in the Baltics - go back to the first half of the 14th century. It has always been open to cultural and social events.

The edifice of the Great Guild was opened in 1857, with elements of Eclecticism of the English Gothic style and an outstanding interior. After a fire in 1963, it was reconstructed two years later with a new entrance-hall and interior adapted to needs of a concert hall, becoming the home of the Riga Philharmonic.

European Christmas. Sinfonietta Rīga and Inga Kalna. The eternal Mozart

13 Dec
Sinfonietta Rīga and the magnificent Mozart-performer Inga Kalna meet again. Along with the clever opera characters the programme includes two symphonies by the Austrian genius. Symphony No. 17 is dressed in manly tricorne hats and flirtatiously flowing dresses; and Symphony No. 32 is modelledas a short three-part overture at the start of an opera, allowing the audience to peek behind the curtain and see the characters warming up on the stage – a couple of curtsies before the drama begins, full of adventures and intrigues.
