The Merry Widow: Estonian National Opera
About the Event
Experience classical music like never before in this astonishing performance of The Merry Wido by Lehár at Tallinn's remarkable Estonian National Opera.
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.
Performed in Estonian with subtitles in Estonian and English.
