Fabulous! Though not big, the theater is modern and good enough. It was the finishing stroke of my affection for Tallinn and Estonia. The artists were so skillful and well-trained that I could only detect few discords (except for the violin solo tonight). Furthermore, it seemed that Alena Shkatula, the prima ballerina was born to be Odette, the swan princess. One of the best Swan Lake I've ever seen.
I really enjoyed the performance I saw. High quality indeed. I didn't like the long queues to get a drink, they have only a few bartenders, and of course very expensive.
Best shashlik (grilled meat) in town. For 6 euro as day offer, you will get big portion of high quality meat with some vegetables.
Lovely intimate theater. Most seats have a good view of the stage, except maybe the gods. The ballet cor were wonderful.
Great place to visit and see a play! If you in Tallin, I recommend.
