A visit to the theatre: The ballet opened a way to the magic world of theatre for many children


On the second Sunday of the theatre month, the children of Estonian substitute homes and shelters watched the family ballet “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” – a play that has been in the programme for more than a decade.

The exciting spectacle was enjoyed by “old” as well as new theatregoers, who gained new insight and experience from what they saw on stage as well as during the tour backstage and a brief ballet lesson.

With every theatre experience also new insight is gained – the kids discuss what they have seen and can associate it with the knowledge they already have. Some like one, the others something else, but there are also things they like in common and favourites, which add also a greater dimension to the theatre experience - joint experience.

A good thing about ballet is that what’s happening on the stage can be understood even if you don’t yet speak the language very well. One teenager liked the joyful dance, music and choreography. The other was impressed about the orchestral music accompanying the ballet. Quite a few boys and girls, who before had doubts about the ballet, got a valuable experience that it is not boring at all, but can be really exciting and enchanting.

In families, who are frequent theatregoers, every play is really looked forward to and each visit to the theatre brings excitement and joy to the house. The children have respect towards every performance – and they always get something new, exciting and useful in return.
