NB! CHANGE IN STARTING TIME, NEW PRESENTATON TIME IS AT 14:00!
On the occasion of the jubilee of the Republic of Estonia, Estonian National Opera and Kanuti Gildi SAAL will collaborate on a new opera “Estonian History. A Nation Born of Shock” by Manfred MIM.
Due to a lucky coincidence partners got a hold on of a yet undiscovered opera’s libretto and musical score written in an unknown way. Opera is created around sixties by innovative scientist and inventor Manfred MIM. After two years of insistent work by more than 10 creative members of MIMproject, they have now analysed through most of Manfred MIM’s notes and restored and deciphered the musical score. Creating the opera is a monumental task, as his ideas request the newest technology and maximum creative and technical force by the Estonian National Opera, Kanuti Gildi SAAL and MIMproject.
On the second showing of the opera, fragments form the translation of Manfred MIM’s legacy into a body language will be introduced, thereby mixing classical movement with the contemporary one. Opera’s choreographical material will be presented by the Estonian National Ballet dancers. In addition to the overture introduced in May 2016, excerpts from the opera’s electronical music will be played for the first time.
