This week’s recommendations vary from dark romantic folk music and open air festivals to cozy book launches, performances and The Fair Lady. We dare to hope there is something suitable for everyone!

On Monday, August 27 at 8 pm, Galician folk band Sangre de Muerdago and Finnish neofolk band Laguz Rune will give an acoustic concert at Muuga manor.

This summer the first artist book of Maria Kapajeva “You can call him another man” was published in collaboration with Kaunas Photography Gallery and partial support by Cultural Endowment of Estonia. The project started with a box of negatives Maria found at her parents’ house a few years ago. There were about 200 processed and unprocessed films, shot by her father. She let herself enter into the world of a young man she never knew, and find connections in what possibly cannot be connected being inspired by Italo Calvino’s words from his novel “If on a winter’s night a traveller”.

My Fair Lady

31 Aug
Estonian National Opera

One of the most popular musicals of all times may almost have not been written at all. In the 1930s the leaders of the American musical industry tried persistently to convince Loewe and Lerner that the source material is incapable of following the rules for the construction of a musical. The project was abandoned for twenty years until the musical theatre changed.

My Fair Lady was previously staged at the Estonian National Opera in 1963, staged by Voldemar Panso.

A young street artist Maria Trinidad Montalban has come from Chile to Tartu on an important mission: to create the first mural on the wall of the Print and Paper Museum. Maria is in Tartu as part of the Tartu Artist in Residence program.
