A brilliant venue for events

The Opera House is a brilliant venue for events of various kinds: meetings, seminars, fashion shows, small functions or grand parties. You may hire any of the foyers for your event, and having the event adjacent to a performance is no problem.

You do not need to commit to buying tickets for the performance when you book a foyer, but rentals are subject to availability.

Take a peek in behind the scenes on a guided tour! The tours are arranged mainly in Finnish, but you can book yourself a guided tour in English as well. We also arrange tours on demand in other languages or for groups (max. 25 persons/group).

Prices for these tours are agreed on separately. For further information and bookings, please contact the Opera sales service.


Corporate event at the Opera


Corporate packages designed just for you

You may combine, say, a backstage tour with your event. A tour will show visitors just how much work and professional skill goes into a successful performance. You may also book an introduction to the evening’s performance tailored for your group.


The Opera Restaurant caters for events large and small

The main foyer can accommodate a buffet service for up to 1,350 guests. A sit-down banquet may also be organised for a relatively large group, 350 to 800 guests.

The Almi Hall foyer is suitable for a variety of events. Although smaller, even this space allows for catering for up to 450 guests.

But an event does not need to be large to be successful; parts of a foyer can be cordoned off and rented for holding smaller, more intimate gatherings.
