“A Marvel of Modern Technology”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 26, 2013

An excellent facility is the Finnish National Opera in Helsinki! Take the guided tour and get a glimpse of the way the facility works and find out how hard every one has to perform to bring you a faultless performance. For youngsters there are many programs to entice them towards being an opera singer. The place is perfectly suitable for companies planning a new launch or a conference and they can link up their events with an opera also. The remarkable feature of the facility is the most ultra modern stage that is huge with a height of 90 feet and a floor area of 5000 square feet. The stage can be divided into four parts and each part can be operated independently to suit the director’s needs. The lighting and sound systems are cutting edge technology and the orchestra pit itself can be independently operated.

“Must see attraction”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2013

Great example of Finnish architectural design. More impressive inside than outside. Found the levels confusing when using the lift, takes a bit of getting used to. Staff helpful when making booking and attending performance.

“Behind the opera house”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2013

There were hundred of people came by their bicycles to meet each other and dance together. If you want meet somebody or just dance outside with someone you don't know go there in the park adjacent to the National opera. If you are very shy, just sit and listen to the music and watch the others.

Wonderfully designed building, very clever and aesthetically pleasing, especially at night, inside and out. Well worth a look.

“Tasty visit to Opera”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2013

When enjoying some ballet at the Finnish National Opera we were happy to taste some delicacies of the house restaurant. Fresh local food as appetizer and something for the sweet tooth prepared by the best of patisseries and chocolateries around.
