Cover from Estonia no. 4

A cover sent on 13 June 2010 from Tallin with a great souvenir sheet commemorating the 100th anniversary of the Estonian National Opera, opened in 1906 as a professional theatre called „Estonia”, founded by the directors and actors Paul Pinna and Theodor Altermann. The stamp on the left features costume designs for Evald Aav's opera “Vikerlased” (Vikings), with music of the same opera forming the background of the souvenir sheet; the ballerina Helmi Puur in Tchaikovsky's Swan Lake figures on the right-hand stamp. Issued on 27 March 2006 in offset, in 70,000 copies.

Thank you, Elina!!
