Estonian National Opera, Tallinn Reviews
Went to see 'The Nutcracker' (which was new to me) along with a friend who had never been to the opera. Keenly felt the responsibility of inducting a newbie in opera-world. It was a joy from start to finish, and looks like I have a convert! The opera was a charming confection with a heartfelt story at its core- well sung, played and acted. The building is in great shape and interval drinks/cakes were exceptionally good, beautifully presented, nicely served, well staffed. Tickets are not expensive at all (as a tourist) - so if you've never been to the opera, try this house for starters. Just don't blame me if you get hooked.
Ballet was fantastic. Well done. Thank you from USA
The stuff which coordinates visitors are awful! I had the ticket for second balcony. I arrived in the nice of time to theatre. I told to administrator which checked my ticket where was toilet. She asked that I have to go to second balcony and there go to toilet. She found the man who lead me to this balcony. Exactly to opposite side where my ticket was located... I talked to local administrator at that balcony about toilet location. She told me that it not enough time to go now. I have to go there during intermission after first act. I started to argue this opinion... At that moment they closed all doors and ballet had been started. Finally I had to wait 35 minutes for visiting toilet there! I found this inappropriate behavior. BTW if there is free place you can move to it without any problem. They could even suggest me to seat to parter there were quiet enough free places. Medea is quiet good technical performance. However, it doesn't show emotional for such kind of tragedy as it should be if consider the plot of play. Can't recommend this ballet for visiting. Also, I found price too high for performance with such level.
Designed by A. Lindgren and W. Lönn and completed in 1913, the art nouveau/classicist Estonia theatre and opera house was the largest building of its kind in Tallinn at the time. One of its two wings was designed as a theatre, and the other as a concert hall. The original building was destroyed during the Soviet bombings in March 1944. However, it was renovated in the latter half of the 1940's. Good to know: The first Estonian parliament convened in the concert hall on 23 April 1919. You can join an hour-long tour before a performance, explore the historic building, and find out what takes place in the theatre before the curtains go up. The building belongs in the National Registry of Cultural Monuments.
Great building- exterior and also interior are fantastic. No better place to enjoy the opera (this time La Traviata) in Tallinn.
