Theatre Vanemuine


This is the oldest theatre in Estonia, founded in Tartu in 1870. It was also the first professional theatre in Estonia (1906) and is the only three-genre theatre in the country, staging operas, operettas and musicals, classical ballet and modern dance, and drama. The theatre has three different buildings and employs more than 350 people, including a ballet troupe with a highly international cast, and a large symphony orchestra. The Vanemuine is a repertory theatre – every season the programme includes more than 40 different productions in a variety of genres.
