Taite ry & Avanti!: Neijonnälkä 29.9.–1.10.2017

Fantastic music and powerful operatic narrative!
The opera company Taite ry and Avanti! Chamber Orchestra will perform two operas by Väinö Raitio in the stage of Almi Hall: Väinämöisen kosinta (Väinämöinen’s wooing) will be orchestrated for the first time ever, while Lyydian kuningas (The King of Lydia) is a rarely seen gem of Finnish opera. The performance will also include extracts from Raitio’s incidental music to the play Asaria. This is an evening of memorable combination of fantastic music and imposing drama.
