Season 2015

The 2015 Savonlinna Opera Festival will be making history on the very first day of the season. Beginning a new chapter is the classic operetta The Merry Widow by Franz Léhar, brought to Savonlinna by the world’s most famous operetta theatre: the Volksoper Wien. The other visitor is the Semperoper Dresden, providing the season’s Mozart: The Marriage of Figaro. Stepping into the shoes of our new Boris Godunov production, staged in partnership with the Chorégies d’Orange festival, is Matti Salminen, while Maestro Leif Segerstam will be ensuring that the Savonlinna Opera Festival Orchestra and Choir give their very best. Two favourite classics from the Italian opera repertoire, Puccini’s Tosca and Verdi’s La traviata, will be back on the programme with their numerous popular arias. Read more
