Opera & Ballet in Action
Taking opera and ballet into your own hands
In Opera & Ballet in Action workshops, 5 to 6 years olds can experience the fascinating world of opera and ballet. Participants learn about a selected Main Stage production through hands-on activities, such as arts and crafts, making music, dancing, and drama. In addition to learning about different art forms, the children get to make a nice souvenir to take home (excluding costume and set workshops). The workshops last approximately 1.5 hours and are held in Finnish.
Workshops for daycare groups
We offer pre-school groups the opportunity to participate in Opera & Ballet in Action workshops for free. Advance enrolment is mandatory. The Opera & Ballet in Action workshops focus on a different art form each month. The workshops are always themed on a main auditorium production of the current repertoire.

feedback from children
I really liked doing the crafts. Jumping on the circular platforms was fun.
It was fun to get dressed up. I liked to dance the Dance of the Little Swans.
It was fun to eat my packed snack at the opera.
The best thing was the performance of Swan Lake. I was the wizard.
