Grand Festive Gala
She’s never indifferent, never nondescript, always electrifying. La Karita is celebrating with a grand festive gala, accompanied by the Opera Festival Orchestra and conductor Hannu Lintu. This event is the talk of the summer.
The gala concert programme includes arias from Karita Mattila’s favourite roles, such as Ariadne, Elisabeth from Tannhäuser and her latest love, Isolde.
It’s been nearly 40 years since she won the Lappeenranta Singing Competition and BBC Cardiff Singer of the World competition, and her iconic career continues as strong as ever. The radiance of this opera prima donna is impossible to match – there is only one Karita Mattila.
The Opera Festival has been postponed to summer 2021 due to the coronavirus epidemic. This summer’s programme will be performed in Olavinlinna in one year’s time. If you have bought or reserved a ticket for summer 2020, don’t worry. Your reservation has been moved to next year. Read more here.
