We had pricy seats, more than 100 euros each but it was worth it. Fantastic view and good acoustics. Swan Lake is a classic but with just a great choreography and beautiful and talented dancers you never get tired of seeing it, or listening to...More

Located north side of Helsinki City center and next to Lake Toolonlahti. You wont miss it if you are on the northern side of this Lake. A state owned opera house which opened in 1993 which shows variety of international and domestic performers.

The exterior of the opera building is quite ugly, but it is nice inside. I saw a great ballet performance there.

Nice place to enjoy some Classical music. It's recommended to book drinks/coffee on advance to avoid waiting on queue.
