Philippine Tatler Traveller - - News & Trends - Www.op­er­afes­ti­val.fi

The 15th-cen­tury Olavin­linna Cas­tle, a beau­ti­ful palace perched on a rocky is­land in Savonlinna, is the spec­tac­u­lar venue for this im­por­tant cul­tural event. Ev­ery year, around 60,000 peo­ple come to watch a reper­toire of clas­sic mas­ter­pieces, works by lesser-known com­posers, and con­certs. This sea­son, a new pro­duc­tion is in­store with a visit by two opera houses. The world’s most fa­mous op­eretta theatre, Volk­soper Vi­enna, will stage The Merry Widow by Franz Léhar. Sem­per­oper Dres­den, on the other hand, will stage Mozart’s The Mar­riage of Fi­garo.
