About the Event
An unforgettable entertainment for everyone who thirsts for love and freedom.
Berlin 1929. The ideas about The New World are growing stronger. But at the Kit Kat Klub, everyone is still welcome. Sally Bowles is the star of the club and together with the emcee she tries to keep the dream of freedom alive. Then she meets Clifford Bradshaw, an American writer who has come to Berlin in search of himself. In a Germany where the Nazis are marching ever louder, this love story unfolds in the shadow of an approaching world war.
“Cabaret” is one of Broadway’s legendary masterpieces, a musical with a serious underlying theme, depicting the impact on the lives of ordinary people caught up in the increasing decadence of Germany in the 1930s. The musical caused a sensation when it made its 1966 Broadway debut, and the season ran for nearly 2000 performances. The wild freedom and abandon of the time establishes an environment of spiritual, artistic and sexual freedom that was soon to be destroyed by the Nazi regime.
Estonian National Opera
The Estonian National Opera company, established in 1870, presents a wide range of operas, operettas, ballets, and musicals.
The opera house itself was constructed in 1913 as the initiative of the 'Estonia' song and drama society. At the time, this Art Nouveau structure was the largest in Tallinn. During the Second World War, the theater was destroyed. Restored in the 1950s under Soviet rule, the architects kept the original facade, but the rest of the building combines Neoclassical and Stalinist elements.
