About the Event
Estonia National Opera invites you to a magical moonlit musical evening on the last day of the year!
Attend a concert on the dark side of the moon, which no human being has ever set foot on and which no telescope can see from Earth. The mysterious dark side of the moon will be revealed for one night only, and together we will travel into a fantastic space and meet strange creatures. The Sleepwalker Choir will perform, we will see wonderful dancing aliens and listen to the best musical masterpieces from the other side of the moon, performed by the best lunar scholars, and enjoy the indelible lunar melodies. Together we will discover the stars in the opera sky and listen to the sounds of distant galaxies.
The journey into space will lead us to dance among the stars of the Milky Way. Thousands of stars will shine above the dancers in the Estonian concert hall. You can dance the night away to the sounds of the Estonian National Opera Orchestra, Mart Sander and the Swing Swindlers. The entire theatre building is open. Space travellers can stroll along the Avenue of the Planets, dine in the best restaurant on Venus and discover and experience various musical surprises in the many corners of the building.
Your tour guides are the experienced cosmonauts Yuri and Valentina. Come and make your mark on the moon and let's send the old year into space like never before!
All bars and cafes will be open to visitors.
