Today we couldn't have wished for nicer weather as the theatre moved outside for the afternoon. The sun shone brightly on the makeshift beach complete with palm trees that sat proudly outside the Opera House....... and ohhhhh almost for a second I thought we were back in Portugal!!!!
Today was the Estonian National Opera's Theatre Fair. With opera, orchestra and dance demonstrations, plenty of entertainment and many characters from the ballet's repertoire milling around the crowds, it was a successful day for all. The queue stretched outside the box office door (a chance to purchase 50% discount tickets) and around the back of the theatre, stalls were set out selling authentic costumes and props from the theatre's many productions. I think it's such a great idea for the general public to have a glimpse of the theatre life, and judging by the swarms of people swirling around our giant opera house it went down a storm :)
So, tomorrow is our day off :) and for now I'm ready for my beauty sleep!!!
