The national TV and Radio broadcasting of Estonia released news, in which it was reported that instead of planned building of the opera in Tallinn, it is more likely that a gas station will be built.
According to Taavi Aas, this information forms readers' opinion that planned building was maliciously stopped, under decision to build something incomparable by importance instead of a cultural facility on the seashore.
"It impossible to build a national opera on the seashore, if neither the theater itself nor the Ministry of Culture wants it. Building of the opera near the port was just one of the options, which was not even seriously discussed.
Director of the National Opera "Estonia" Aivar Miae assured that they refrained from that variant because of the remoteness from the city center and the the port nearness,"Aas said.
According to his words, gas station will be separated from the sea by a coastal line, as well as by Pikssilma Street.
There will be no petrol station more in Tallinn because of this, since this is about moving the station, which now is located near Gorhall at Pikssilma Street .
