Dress rehearsals for groups

Harjoitukset_näyttämö

Would you like to join our test audience?

Getting an opera or ballet production ready for the premiere takes a lot of hard work. The culmination of the rehearsal period is the dress rehearsal – moving from the small rehearsal rooms into the auditorium. All the elements of the premiere are already in place, from the sets to the costumes and make-up.

We welcome schools and other groups to join our dress rehearsals as a test audience. The test audience adds a sense of tension and excitement, which helps our artists mentally prepare for the premiere.

Dress rehearsals can be attended with advance enrolment only.
