Les Misérables opens in Estonia
November 25th, 2017, was the official opening night for my new production of one of the most famous mega musicals in the world - Les Misérables (Hüljatud). The production was produced by famous Vanemuine Theatre, and it will also open officially in Tallinn December 8th, 2017.
This production has been by far the most challenging and rewarding experience I’ve had so far, and I have grown as a creative and as a human being through this experience. The cast of 67 performers, and a crew of more than 100 members, has become a great new family for me, and I couldn’t be more proud of my entire team. The international creative team has worked hard for this new production, and the audiences have embraced the musical with standing ovations night after night. The 1st year of the show is already nearly sold out both in Tallinn and Tartu, and the response has been amazing. The opening night was filled with local celebrities, media, and politicians - and the bows were the longest Estonia has seen in 20 years, according to media.
I am forever grateful for this experience, and I hope this musical will run for a long time in Estonia. Please visit Vanemuine Theatre website to find out more (and for more pictures and media): http://www.vanemuine.ee/repertuaar/huljatud/ .
