Estonian National Opera - opera house

Estonia puiestee 4, Kesklinna linnaosa, Tallinn

View on map

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.
