A fabulous week of new opera festival productions ahead

Auf Wiedersehen, Viennese and Volksoper Vienna, and thank you for visiting. You made an unforgettable impression! Next up on the festival programme is the Little Magic Flute, an opera written especially for children that will enthral Savonlinna audiences at 15.00 on 9, 10 and 11 July.

Boris Godunov will then bring us a power play from Imperial Russia at 19.00 on 11 July. These performances are in great demand, so book early to avoid disappointment. Matti Salminen is imperious in the title role, with Leif Segerstam an imposing presence as conductor. The part of False Dmitry is played by Mika Pohjonen.

Our visiting opera house Semperoper Dresden will interpret the Marriage of Figaro on its opening night of Monday 13 July. Semperoper productions are so popular in Germany that tickets are hard to come by, so this rare opportunity at Savonlinna is not to be missed. Tuuli Takala will provide a Finnish contribution to the production in the role of Barbarina. The orchestra will be the world famous Sächsische Staatskapelle Dresden.
