The Opera house is closed from 1 May to 31 August 2023

refurbishment takes place over the summer

The Opera House celebrates its 30th anniversary this year. To mark the occasion, the building will be renovated and closed to visitors from 1 May to 31 August. The stage automation system of the Main Stage will be revamped, and the lobbies and foyers will see upgrades to the building systems as well as aesthetic improvements like repainting.

Our customer service point will be closed during the refurbishment, but we are still here to help. We’re at your service over the phone, via chat, and around the clock at our online store. You can also purchase tickets at the service desks of Stockmann department stores without reservation fees. Our customer service point will open 4 September at 12 p.m.

See Stockmann service desk opening times here. Please note that the Stockmann service desks charge a service fee of €1.50 per ticket, gift voucher or season ticket.

Ongoing roadworks on Mannerheimintie

Transport connections are currently being impacted by the Mannerheimintie roadworks between and around the Kiasma Museum of Modern Art and the Opera House.
Tram lines 4 and 10 and some buses on Mannerheimintie are being diverted via Arkadiankatu and Runeberginkatu, which adds a few minutes to all travel times. Please check the HSL Route Planner for information about your public transport connections.

Only one lane of traffic is in use on Mannerheimintie, so please account for possible congestion and longer travel times when arriving by private car. The Mäntymäenkenttä car park can only be reached via the Mäntymäki entrance from 4 September.

Please also note that the zebra crossing across Mannerheimintie from the Opera House towards Runeberginkatu (next to the Carelia restaurant) is not in use.
