INTERVIEW: World-famous opera tenor José Cura on new Tallinn production

20.09.18 ... This month, Tallinn's Opera and Ballet House (Rahvusooper) finds time in its permanently frenetic schedule to host a new production of La fanciulla del West, by Puccini. Set in the old American West, it deserves to be as familiar as La bohème and Madama Butterfly, or, for hitherto opera ignorati such as myself, even simply Nessun Dorma as it accompanied Paul Gascoigne's crying at the 1990 World Cup Finals.*

FEATURE | Interview with the Kalamaja archaeological time team

01.09.18 ... This summer, what would appear to be just another Tallinn construction site became something of a celebrated case as the preliminary digging work led to the discovery of a wealth of mostly domestic artefacts from the late middle ages. The find, in Tallinn's Kalamaja district, effectively filled in a gap in knowledge about society in Estonia in the 15th century.

'No (stateless) person, no problem?': An interview with Yana Toom MEP

04.08.18 ... I arrive slightly early for my interview with Yana Toom at her constituency office in a fashionable street in central Tallinn, only to find out that she has beaten me to it and is already there. A very tall woman, easily recognisable thanks to her distinctive russet hair, she is wilting in the current heatwave in Tallinn just as much as I am and we go out for a pre-interview cigarette on the office balcony (''I'm just a summer smoker'' I say, not very convincingly).

Professor: Populism and idiocy have a natural limit

16.06.17 ... According to professor of particle physics and television presenter Brian Cox, the life-expectancy of a post-factual world is necessarily limited, as it will inevitably lead to the collapse of civilisation.

Under siege: Events at the Estonian embassy in Moscow

25.04.17 ... During the Bronze Night riots, the Estonian embassy in Moscow was surrounded by protesters, most of them members of the Nashi and Molodaya Rossiya.

Andrus Ansip: 'We decided to solve the problem before it got out of hand'

25.04.17 ... In 2007, the European Union’s commissioner for the digital single market, Andrus Ansip, was prime minister of Estonia. In his interview with ERR, he talks about how he experienced the events surrounding the removal of the Bronze Soldier ten years ago.

Alar Karis: Moving security sciences academy pointless

14.03.17 ... Auditor General Alar Karis spoke in the Riigikogu on Monday and found rather clear words to describe the Justice Ministry’s continuing push for a complete move of the Estonian Academy of Security Sciences to Narva. In a quick interview with ERR News, he explains why.

Marina Kaljurand: The essence of the Tallinn Manual

17.02.17 ... How can international law be applied on a cyberattack? What is the legal meaning of sovereignty and human rights in cyberspace? Modern technology represents an enormous challenge for law and policy makers. The Tallinn Manual 2.0 is a pioneering tool that helps them find their own direction.
