THREE JOLLY FELLOWS: Children’s opera at Estonian National Opera
About the Event
Immerse yourself in the stunning architecture of Tallinn's breathtaking Estonian National Opera for the ultimate concert set to awake your understanding of opera.
This story will certainly melt the hearts of both children and their parents and it will never grow old because the best cure for everything is always true friendship, cleverness, and warm‐hearted humour (not to mention Iceland moss tea).
Composer Tõnis Kaumann, librettist Vahur Keller (Kellerteater)
World premiere in the Estonian National Opera on May 27, 2022
Performed in Estonian with Estonian subtitles.
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.
