Description:
The Finnish National Opera and Ballet is the only professional opera company in Finland. It traces its history back to 1911 and the Ballet was founded in 1922. The company occupied the tiny Alexander Theatre on Bulevardi for decades until the purpose-built Opera House was finally inaugurated in 1993.

There are generally four new opera productions and three new ballet productions staged each year. Added to these are revivals of old productions. The Finnish National Opera and Ballet performs both established classics and contemporary opera and dance works, especially new Finnish works.

Following international practice, operas are generally performed in their original languages. There is a surtitling screen above the proscenium arch, usually with the text in Finnish, Swedish and English.
