Pelléas and Mélisande

Mélisande is a maiden discovered wandering in the forest. She finds a mysterious castle, where she tragically falls in love with the young Pelléas. Debussy's dreamlike symbolist opera is here given an enchantingly beautiful setting.

 

Il tabarro & I pagliacci

Two tales of the relationship between an ageing man and a young woman, and destructive jealousy. Il tabarro is a realistic story set on a riverboat. In I pagliacci, the action is set in the world of theatre, where everything is possible.

 

Die Fledermaus

Die Fledermaus is a classic operetta thanks to its energetically bubbling music. Marco Arturo Marelli's new production shows that even an old warhorse can reveal new aspects of itself.

 

La Bohème

It is a frigid winter in Paris; the moon shines over the roofs of the city. But the virtues of art and romance warm the hearts of the young bohemians, just like the music of Puccini feeds the audience's soul.

 

The Cunning Little Vixen

Leoš Janáček's The Cunning Little Vixen is an insightful study about the relationship between the restrictions of human life and the freedom of the animal kingdom.

 

Dreamland & The Raven

Part of the Musica nova Helsinki Festival, the concert introduces the interpretations by two composers of Edgar Allan Poe's texts.

 

 

Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg

Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg is a grandiose opera by Wagner setting a good-humoured story about the encounter of old and new worlds.

 

Émilie

In Kaija Saariaho's opera, Émilie du Châtelet, an exceptional woman facing conflicting expectations, will be played by the wonderful Camilla Nylund.

 

Grand Choral Gala

The Chorus of the FNO acquired its present formation 70 years ago. To celebrate the anniversary, a Grand Choral Gala will be held in spring 2015.

 

Aida

Military commander Radamès inadvertently betrays his country because of his love for Aida. The lovers are joined in death. This Egyptian story inspired Verdi to write some of his most brilliant music, resulting in one of the finest operas of all time.
