Marjukka Tepponen, Waltteri Torikka & Jukka Nykänen

A Night by Lake Saimaa

Ticket sales start on Friday 12 March at 9 a.m.

This feelgood concert will feature at least the timeless ”Speak Softly, Love” and the moving widow’s song from the opera Porgy and Bess. The array of opera, operetta, musical and film tunes will also include familiar Finnish solo numbers and improvisations by the multi-talented Jukka Nykänen.

A Night by Lake Saimaa is made special by not just its charismatic performers but also its sparkling, summery ambience. The complete programme will be announced later.

Soprano Marjukka Tepponen and baritone Waltteri Torikka will also appear as visiting artists in our operas. Tepponen will sing the role of Violetta in La traviata, while Torikka will be seen in The Barber of Seville.

Like his inspiration, Franz Liszt, Jukka Nykänen is a true virtuoso. The pianist is also an accomplished composer, arranger and entertainer.

Tickets to the concert are for unnumbered seats. You can choose your price category and section, and you will receive more specific seating instructions upon arrival. This will help us adhere to the recommended safe distancing measures. In order to maintain distancing in the audience, we are currently only selling tickets to approximately half of Olavinlinna’s seating capacity.
