Opera Studio

Eesti Muusika- ja Teatriakadeemia Tallinn


The opera Rinaldo, a collaboration between the Opera Studio and the Symphony Orchestra of the Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre (EAMT), was first staged as part of the final examination of the graduates of the Academy's Voice Department in 2011. An interpretation of George Frideric Handel's opera set during the First Crusade, the piece finds many contemporary resonances in the current political and religious tension between Christian and Islamic communities.
