Ballet gala

In 2019, we mark 80 years of ballet at the Vanemuine Theatre. It has been a colourful, fascinating, often complicated but endlessly beautiful time. We have always had interesting, distinctive repertoire throughout our history, and our dancers have excelled in performing it.

The Vanemuine ballet birthday gala is a deep bow to our audiences and ourselves – we perform significant and historical numbers (including from the productions by the legendary Ida Urbel and Ülo Vilimaa!) and audience favourites from more recent years.
