The Daile Theater

Playriga.com the site that started as a web site for tourists, evolved to be against tourists (especially sex tourists), afterwards changed again to focus on art and culture and eventually crashed and was restored from old backup!
The site has still has prices in Lats (LVL), pages are not updated since long long time ago, but in any case it stays as it is as a nice souvenir to old times.

The Daile Theater was first opened on November 19, 1920 , this year it is celebrating its 90th anniverery.

Initially the  Daile Theater was housed in a building at Lāčplēša Street 25 (the New Riga Theater is located there now) but in 1977 the theatre moved to a Soviet style building, built specially for this purpose.

From 1941 there used to work also the famous Latvian actor Ēvalds Valters - for a long time he was recognized as the oldest working actor in the world ( he was 100 years old!).
