Ready to welcome the new season

In August, the Opera House welcomes visitors again after a long period of silence. There is a limited amount of tickets on sale for performances in August and September.

The first premiere of the season, Cavalleria rusticana & Pagliacci on 20 August combines two opera classics revolving around secret love, jealousy, and revenge. At the Finnish National Ballet, the season opens with the fabulous family favourite, Sleeping Beauty, on 21 August.

As per the existing regulations from the authorities, two-metre safe distancing is ensured at the performances of Cavalleria rusticana & Pagliacci on 20, 24 and 26 August as well as Sleeping Beauty on 21 and 25 August. The abovementioned safe distancing also applies to the performance of Sleeping Beauty on 27 August and Cavalleria rusticana & Pagliacci on 28 August. If you have tickets for these performances, your seat in the auditorium might change. There’s no need to worry, however, as we will soon be in touch with you directly.

There is a limited amount of tickets on sale for performances in August and September. We will release more seats at the earliest opportunity.

Refreshment sales for performances in August will start on Monday 16 August at 10 a.m. The Opera Restaurant is now managed by Food&Events Tapahtumaravintolat. Discover the new selection and order refreshments.

Face masks are mandatory for every adult visiting the Opera House, unless they have a health condition preventing them from doing so. Read more about our safety recommendations. The instructions and restrictions are valid until further notice.
