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
