On New Year’s Eve, the Estonian National Opera traditionally invites everyone to enjoy the dazzling moments. Guests can dance, enjoy the witty gala performance and the festive atmosphere at the National Opera Estonia. The Theatre Hall, Concert Hall, Winter Garden, White Hall and Café Colombina are all open.
This year the New Year’s Eve Ball is dedicated to the commencing anniversary year, during which we invite you to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Estonian Republic and Estonian ballet, as well as the 25th anniversary of the New Year’s Eve Ball itself! Inspired by the festive atmosphere, we present you with the best melodies by both Estonian and international composers, such as Boris Kõrver, Eino Tamberg, Eugen Kapp, Johann Strauss, Imre Kálmán and Leroy Anderson performed by the Estonian National Opera soloists, chorus and orchestra as well as the Estonian National Ballet.
There is live music by Urmas Lattikas (piano) in the White Hall, by Tanel Sakrits (mandolin) and Peeter Priks (guitar) in the Blue Hall. Estonia Concert Hall features Estonian Dream Big Band, Kaire Vilgats and Kalle Sepp. For one night, Café Colombina will turn into a disco club where you can dance past midnight. Hosts of the evening are Juuli Lill and Rauno Elp.
