Artistic Directors recommend

Sebastian Fagerlund

Höstsonaten – Autumn Sonata

15.11.2019 – 12.12.2019

The cinema classic as an acclaimed opera

”Sebastian Fagerlund’s opera Höstsonaten – Autumn Sonata, based on a novel of the same name by Ingmar Bergman, was a critics’ favourite in 2017. This ravishing relationship drama will return to the FNO repertoire, starred by one of today’s most important opera artists, Anne Sofie von Otter.”

- Lilli Paasikivi, Artistic Director of the Opera

Höstsonaten; Anne Sofie von Otter
Astrid Lindgren – Pär Isberg – Stefan Nilsson, Georg Riedel

Pippi Longstocking

29.11.2019 – 21.12.2019

The world’s strongest ballet!

”Roller skates, monkeys on a skate board, dancers flying in the air – anything can happen when Pippi’s around. Bring everyone you know from the age of 3 to 100 to this wonderful performance.”

- Madeleine Onne, Artistic Director of the Ballet

Peppi Pitkätossu baletti
Natalia Makarova – Ludvig Minkus

La Bayadère

18.1.2020 – 7.2.2020

A divinely beautiful love story

”La Bayadere is a true classic that has it all: beautiful music by Minkus, fantastic costumes and sets, the quintessential white tutus of classical ballet and, of course, lots and lots of incredible dancing. If you love Swan Lake, La Bayadere is for you.”

- Madeleine Onne, Artistic Director of the Ballet

La Bayadère
Richard Strauss

Ariadne auf Naxos

24.1.2020 – 15.2.2020

”A stage version of Ariadne auf Naxos will be seen for the first time at the current premises of the FNO. Director Katie Mitchell’s production is an excellent example of modern European regietheater. One of the season’s highlights will be the interpretation of the role of Ariadne by Miina-Liisa Värelä, whose rise to European opera fame has been astronomical.”

- Lilli Paasikivi, Artistic Director of the Opera

Ariadne auf Naxos
Pyotr Tchaikovsky

Eugene Onegin

18.3.2020 – 24.4.2020

An opera of great yearning

”Marelli has directed a tremendously beautiful interpretation of Pushkin’s tale of Russian aristocracy. The name role of Eugene Onegin is performed by the magnificent young baritone Boris Pinkhasovich, already the favourite of great opera companies.”

- Lilli Paasikivi, Artistic Director of the Opera

Eugene Onegin; Elena Stikhina
Jorma Elo – Joseph Haydn, G. F. Händel, Gottfried Stölzel

Alice in Wonderland

23.8.2019 – 28.5.2020

Fall into a fairy-tale world

”Everyone knows Alice in Wonderland. Now, Finland’s own world famous choreographer Jorma Elo has made Alice into a ballet. This wonderful performance, with the characters from the book dancing throughout the performance, is truly an experience for the whole family.”

- Madeleine Onne, Artistic Director of the Ballet
