Taaperoiden taidetuokio: Saara Kiiveri

Cheerful and colourful opera

Help! Rosina is in trouble! She likes the Count, but Bartolo forces her to marry himself instead. Who could help? Figaro, of course! Familiar tunes from The Barber of Seville are used in this fun performance suitable for everyone from the age of 2.

This art break for toddlers presents the familiar opera in a new guise. There is plenty of chaos and humour with twists and turns as the characters in a charming miniature theatre come to life. The principal action and greatest hits in the opera have been condensed to less than 30 minutes.

Taaperoiden taidetuokio: Sevillan Parturi; Sampo Haapaniemi, Saara Kiiveri

Join in

The audience is invited to join in: everyone is doing a lot of things in these productions, with soloists in multiple roles, and the musicians are not always what they seem.
