According to statistics recently published by operabase.com, Estonia, with its 131 opera performances per million residents during the 2013/2014 season, was on the second place in a ranking of total opera performances after Austria and before Switzerland and Germany. Thus, Estonia has restored its position from two years before. Comparative statistics show that during the 2013/2014 season, Estonian National Opera had 20 operas in its programme and altogether 108 operas were performed, i.e. 64% of all performances.

Two professional opera houses are active in Estonia. With festival performances, private projects and student works, an average of 5 to 10 new opera performances are staged every year.
