Face masks and other essentials

Because of the coronavirus pandemic, face masks are mandatory for every adult visiting the Opera House.

Costume Designer Erika Turunen has created three different face mask styles for us. Dress to the nines for the festive season’s performances and buy a face mask at the Opera Shop at €12 each. The shop will also save the day if your tights break on the way to the opera or ballet.

Seasonal theme products

The Opera Shop has a fascinating range of opera and ballet related products, which are not available anywhere else. The selection is renewed every season. The much-awaited Ring cycle is featured at the Opera Shop, with a selection of stylish T-shirts and canvas shopping bags with the Ring logo.

Postcards and stamps

It is never a bad idea to remember a friend by sending a postcard. Or adding to your own postcard collection. The extensive selection in the Opera Shop contains postcards from various eras, featuring the Opera House and opera and ballet productions.

Pumps for ballet fans

A real fan will want to obtain a pair of ballet pumps with dancers’ autographs. The selection of products may vary depending on availability.

Books and programme booklets

You need never leave it to the night of the performance to buy a programme booklet; you can get it at the Opera Shop whenever you like. The shop also carries a selection of books on opera and ballet. Don’t forget to seek out the Finnish National Opera and  Ballet’s centenary publication.

Recordings galore

Passionate opera fans will find a collection of DVD and CD recordings of opera music from around the world at the Opera Shop. These include Finnish opera themed recordings from recent years, too. Get yours quickly, as stock is running out fast!
