Tallinn Opera House

Tallin Opera House Inside 403 x 269

Tallinn Opera 2016-2017

Tallinn is probably the most modern of the three Baltic capitals but at its centre is the medieval city with a maze of cobbled streets, its city walls, merchant’s houses, guild halls, fine restaurants and soaring church spires. There is much to see in Tallinn but while in Tallinn, there is the possibility of visiting Helsinki by ferry. Both cities are ports and there are several crossings daily; both ferry terminals are close to the city centres, the fares are inexpensive and the crossing time is only an hour and a half. We can also arrange onward travel to other parts of Estonia such as the peaceful island of Saaremaa or to Estonian’s other cities like Tartu or Parnu.

Estonia’s operatic traditions are 250 years old and the Estonian National Opera was founded in 1906. The core of its present repertoire consists of classical and contemporary operas, ballets, operettas and musicals. While the opera houses of many formerly communist cities have increased their ticket prices very substantially, the Estonian National Opera & Ballet still offers great value.

Opera performances during the 2016-2017 season include many standards of the operatic repertoire with many lighter works such as  the operettas of Kálmán. .
