About audience outreach

Learn more about our audience outreach projects.

Audience outreach spreads the word about opera and ballet

Our audience outreach projects cover all of Finland, offering hundreds of activities each year. These include interactive artistic experiences as well as performances and events targeted at specific audience groups. The majority of our activities are free, but some performances may have a small entrance fee.

Our aim is to spread the word about opera and ballet and encourage people of all ages to get involved in artistic expression. In our projects, we want to foster a safe and inclusive atmosphere, where every participant is valued and capable.

In 2023, we visited 47 municipalities and reached approximately 45,000 people through our projects. We collaborate with various organisations and institutions, including arts institutions, universities, museums, municipalities, daycare centres, residential homes, and organisations representing different industries.

Everyone is most welcome to join in!
