There’ll be plenty of laughs in Olavinlinna Castle in summer 2019, in a programme that features both comic opera and operetta.

The season’s new production is Rossini’s The Barber of Seville, a whirl of a sitcom in which the twists and turns are exploited to the full in the direction by Kari Heiskanen. The Opera Festival Choir will have a magnificent chance to shine in Mozart’s Great Mass in C minor in Kerimäki Church.

Two old favourites are back on the programme next year: Verdi’s Rigoletto, an agonisingly tear-jerking classic in which the drama unfolds in some of the world’s best-known arias, and Mozart’s The Abduction from the Seraglio, a carefree, thought - provoking story about cultural encounter – a topic that never ages.
