WNO at Savonlinna Opera Festival

29 July 2014

We’re delighted be to bringing the Savonlinna Opera Festival to a close this week with performances of Nabucco and Manon Lescaut from 29 July – 2 August. Established in 1912, Savonlinna Opera Festival is one of the most significant international events in the Finnish cultural calendar and held annually in the stunning surroundings of Olavinlinna Castle. The festival attracts an estimated 60,000 visitors, around a quarter of who come from abroad to attend (click here to read more about the history of the festival).

Our team of 183 cast and crew have been incredibly busy putting together the final touches for both productions. Click here to take a look at our photo album so far...
