Tartu New Theatre visited Toronto

February 20, 2020

This year Estonians living in Toronto had a great Valentine’s present as the Tartu New Theatre visited VEMU and gave two performances of their monodrama “Symphony for One” (directed by Ardo Ran varres) on February 13 and 14. The intriguing play was performed by the Estonian Theatre’s “Grand Old Man” Aleksander Eelmaa. “Symphony for One” is a humorous and dramatic performance which leads the audience to a journey through the cultural history of Estonia. The play is organized around the main characters dialogue with his old radio. From this dialogue evolve different episodes that give insight into cultural events in Estonia as well as to the main character’s personal history.
