Saaremaa Opera Festival
Each summer, a huge opera tent is erected in the Kuressaare castle yard. Although, the word tent refers to modest conditions, it actually is a sumptuous temporary opera house with red carpets, crystal chandeliers and chairs clothed in white. During earlier years, the opera artists from Georgia, Russia and Italy performed on the opera stage of Kuressaare. 2017 is a chance to enjoy the performances of Krefeld-Mönchengladbach Theatre from Germany.
