First Swedish-language school opera

Opera with professionals

The school opera Djurens planet (Animal Planet) is a production created jointly by pupils in lower-level comprehensive school and opera professionals. Djurens planet is the first ever Swedish-language school opera of the Finnish National Opera and Ballet, made with financial support by Swedish-speaking foundations.

From autumn 2019, the students of Swedish-speaking schools can participate in projects all around Finland.

Djurens planet is about the relationship between humans and animals. The planet belongs to both, and we all have the right to live here – but where do our rights end and the rights of animals begin?

The FNOB has been producing school operas for 17 years. More than 20,000 schoolchildren from around 300 schools all over Finland have gained first-hand experience of staging and performing an opera.
