It's not every day you get to see familiar faces from televison performing on our stage! 📺🎭 Today was that day! Pictured here is Astrid Kannel, Television Host and Editor at Estonian Public Broadcasting, who was playing one of the Tyrolean in "The Bird Seller". 🔸🔸🔸 Teleekraanilt tuttavaid nägusid ei näe just iga päev meie laval etendusi kaasa tegemas. 📺🎭 Täna oli meie publikul see võimalus! Astrid Kannel oli üks neist, kes "Linnukauplejas" oma näitlemisoskused proovile pani. #operaestonia 📷 @kirsip_photography

This year we partnered up with Estonian Public Broadcasting to have even more fun with the job swap. 😁 Maian Kärmas, Music Editor of Raadio Tallinn, helped to make the props for our upcoming ballet "Romeo and Juliet". 👰 🎨 🔸🔸🔸 Sellel aastal korraldasime töövahetuspäeva koostöös Eesti Rahvusringhäälinguga, et päeva veelgi rohkem põnevust tuua! 😁 Maian Kärmas, kes on igapäevaselt Raadio Tallinn muusikatoimetaja, sai täna valmistada rekvisiite peagi esietenduva balleti "Romeo ja Julia" tarbeks. 👰🎨#operaestonia @kirsip_photography

Once a year we swap jobs at the opera house to understand each other’s roles better and also to have fun! 🙃 This year our theatre director Aivar Mäe decided to spend the day in our hatmakers workshop. 🎩 🧢👒👑He's a natural! 🔸🔸🔸 Kord aastas vahetame me teatrimajas omavahel rolle, et paremini mõista, millega kolleegid tegelevad. 🙃 Lisaks pakub päev parasjagu elevust ning vaheldust argirutiinile. Teatrijuht Aivar Mäe otsutas sellel aastal kübarameistri ametit proovida. 🎩🧢👒👑Tuleb välja küll! #operaestonia 📷 @kirsip_photography

@tiithelimets: "I have always been interested in human psychology and the development of a person from birth to death. My ballet deals with all that and I hope that the spectators will find both parallels with their own lives and discover also something new." 🔸🔸🔸 @tiithelimets: "Olen terve elu huvitunud inimpsühholoogiast ja inimese arengust sünnist surmani. Minu ballett tegeleb just sellega ning loodan, et vaataja leiab nii paralleele oma eluga kui ka avastab midagi uut." #operaestonia 📷: @pilleriinpettaiphotography

Let's get to know @tiithelimets - third choreographer whose work will be performed in "Ballet evening"! 👋 Helimets began his career as a soloist with the Estonian National Ballet and has worked his way up to San Francisco Ballet as the principal dancer. 🕺In 2011 Helimets choreographed "Aeg" for Estonian National Ballet. 🕰Year after he created a dance/music installation at San Francisco's de Young Museum, and in 2013 he was the producer of Estonian National Ballet's tour to San Francisco. 🌎 In his short ballett "Thread", the choreographer draws parallels between the life of a human being and a thread. 🔸🔸🔸 Saame lähemalt tuttavaks "Balletiõhtu" kolmanda koreograafi Tiit Helimetsaga! 👋 Eesti Rahvusballetis oma lennukat karjääri alustanud Helimets on juba 13 aastat San Francisco Balleti esitantsija. 🕺2011 aastal lõi Helimets Eesti Rahvusballetile teose "Aeg". 🕰 Aasta hiljem valmis San Francisco de Young Museumis tema tantsu- ning muusikainstallatsioon. 2013. aastal oli ta Eesti Rahvusballeti San Francisco turnee produtsent. 🌎 Oma lühiballetis "Lõng" tõmbab koreograaf paralleele inimese elutee ja lõnga vahele. #operaestonia #balletiõhtu #ballett #balletevening #ballet 📷 @albert.kerstna

@evemutso: "I still consider Estonian National Opera as my second professional home aside Scottish Ballet and I'm glad to have the opportunity to bring my work to it’s stage and share it with the people I love. After the premiere, "Echo" will travel to Glasgow, which in a way means bringing the two sides of my life together." 🔸🔸🔸 @evemutso: "Pean Estoniat Šoti Balleti kõrval oma teiseks koduteatriks. Mul on hea meel, et saan oma uue teose tuua lavale just siin ning jagada seda inimestega, kellest ma väga hoolin. Samuti on mul hea meel, et seejärel etendub „Kaja“ Glasgow’s, mille kaudu saavad kokku minu elu kaks poolt, minu kaks kodu." #operaestonia #balletevening #balletiõhtu #ballet #ballett 📷 @runnolahesoo

"Echo" is based on music by Kristjan Kõrver and Giles Lamb. @evemutso: "I first heard Kristjan Kõrver's piece "Invitation to Dance" on a compilation album of works by young Estonian composers, given to me by Kersti Kirs from the Estonian Embassy in London. I instantly knew that I wanted this in my new work. The playful, even humorous undertones provided the right accent that I had been looking for. The rest of the piece is based on music by Giles Lamb, a Scottish composer with whom I had collaborated previously." 🔸🔸🔸 "Kaja" muusika on kirjutanud Kristjan Kõrver ja Giles Lamb. @evemutso: "Kristjan Kõrverini jõudsin noorte Eesti heliloojate kogumikplaadi kaudu, mida andis mulle kuulata Kersti Kirs Eesti saatkonnast Londonis. Teadsin kohe, kui tema "Kutse tantsule" mu kõrvus kõlas, et tahan just seda teost kasutada lavastuse keskmes. Selle mänguline ja humoorikas alatoon andis teosele just selle rõhuasetuse, mida olin otsinud. Teine osa muusikast on Šoti helilooja Giles Lamb'i looming, kellega olen juba eelnevalt koostööd teinud." 📷 @runnolahesoo #operaestonia #ballet #ballett #balletevening #balletiõhtu

"Echo" in rehearsal. @evemutso : "It is always a pleasure to work with highly capable and professional artists and Estonian National Ballet dancers are at the top of their profession. Finding the right people to work with was very important – I looked for people with big personalities, who could contribute beyond their clear technical abilities. This really matters, if we want to reach the audience – you cannot do it without human touch and personality." 🔸🔸🔸 "Kaja" proovisaalis. @evemutso: "Võimekate ja professionaalsete artistidega on alati hea koos töötada ning Eesti Rahvusballeti tantsijad on oma ala tipud. Mulle oli väga oluline leida just sellised tantsijad, kellega saaksin tõeliselt "koos" proovisaalis töötada – tõelised isiksused, kellel on anda midagi enamat peale puhtalt tehnilise võimekuse. Olen veendunud, et see paistab välja ka laval – inimlikkuse ja isikupärata publikut ei puuduta." #balletiõhtu #operaestonia #balletevening 📷 @runnolahesoo

@lolarosebee rehearsing Eve Mutso's ballet "Echo" as part of "Ballet Evening" which premieres on November 8th! ✨✨ @evemutso: "The audience expects strong emotions from dance and is open to be touched by artists. Therefore I would like the movement to move and humanity to touch their soul." 🔸🔸🔸 @lolarosebee Eve Mutso "Kaja" proovis. Publiku ette jõuab teos 8. novembril, kui esietendub "Balletiõhtu"! ✨✨ @evemutso: "Arvan, et publik ootab tantsukunstist tugevaid emotsioone ja on avatud sellele, et kehalise liikumise kaudu nende hinge poetaks. Nii tahangi, et liikumine liigutaks ja inimlikkus puudutaks." #operaestonia #balletevening #balletiõhtu 📷 @runnolahesoo
