About the Event
Enjoy Ravel's lyric opera fantasy “The Child and the Spells” and a dance production “Mother Goose” at the Estonian National Opera in Talinn.
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.
The performances are sung in Estonian or French, subtitles in Estonian and English.
Recommended for ages 12 and older.
