About the Event
Immerse yourself in the stunning architecture of Tallinn's breathtaking Estonian National Opera and enjoy the ballet event of the fall season with Tchaikovsky’s Masterpieces and short ballets by George Balanchine and Mai Murdmaa.
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.
