I was pleased to see a ballet performance there. It was exciting to see the National Ballet at its best. The place itself is amazingly beautiful. I highly recommend taking in a show if your visit can include it.

Always wanted to see AIDA, took my chance and booked up on an earlier visit to Helsinki. Was not disappointed. To start with, wonderful interior bar area to roam in before performance, despite - full house – did not fill overcrowded. And come the interval...More

The Operahouse from outside is ugly, understandable if the architectural competition was in 1970-th. Very nice nordic style interior, maybe the furniture liked too cheap for operahouse. Really logic lines for service, you can preorder easy and plenty of time for relaxing in break and...More

It's difficult to separate a venue from the experience of attending a performance, however the Finnish Opera and Ballet house on Helsinginkatu is an amazing venue to watch ballet. It's a compact space and that seems to make the experience a bit more intimate than...More

I went to see Tosca here and it was outstanding. I thoroughly enjoyed the performance. The opera house itself has really good accoustics and the staff are very helpful. I really enjoyed myself. It's a modern opera house so not somewhere I'd choose to tour...More

Absolutely amazing how a woman can sing... Madama Butterfly was worth a trip mainly for Hyeseoung Kwon. Besides singing she could also act the role. Touching! The costumes were a bit boring. Opera house itself impressive. Servings during intermission were elegant and not unreasonably priced.

While it is very much a modern opera house, so doesn't have the charm of some of the older European theatres, the companies that perform here are of top quality. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and the performance of Rigoletto was superb! Really good performance,...More
