The 19th International Baltic Ballet Festival opens with a concert at the Riga Central Railroad Station at 5 p.m. on Monday, April 7, reports LETA.

Soloists from the Latvian National Ballet, dance ensemble "Dzirnas" and ballet studio "Grande" will participate in the performance Monday evening, said the festival's director Lita Beiris.

This year, the festival has a very long and varied program, including ballet performances, concerts, film screenings, exhibitions and other events. The most awaited festival event this year is the festival's gala concert at the Latvian National Opera on April 14, featuring performances by international ballet competition winners and soloists from the world's leading ballet companies.
