Opera Skaala: Baby Jane


Aleksanterin teatteri, Bulevardi 27, Helsinki

Baby Jane is Opera Skaala’s latest production which
had its premiere in October 2019 in Helsinki. The story is
based on the novel of the same name by Sofi Oksanen
(1977-), internationally one of the most awarded
contemporary authors in Finland.

The work is a modern depiction of a love affair between two women, coloured by the painful themes of mental health problems and exclusion in society.

The composer of the opera is Markus Kärki, acclaimed
for his film and game music. Kärki’s symphonic and
impressionistic musical language creates a striking
framework for the tense, twisting psychological spiral of
the plot.

The leading roles of the opera are played by soprano Tuuli Lindeberg and mezzo-soprano Essi Luttinen, who are among the most talented and versatile artists in Finnish vocal music. The third role is played by soprano Laura Heinonen.

The opera’s artistic team consists of the well- established experts of Opera Skaala, an independent opera company focusing on contemporary opera and new performing concepts in the art of opera.

The work is directed by Janne Lehmusvuo, with a libretto by Essi Luttinen and Janne Lehmusvuo.

Composer: Markus Kärki
Libretto: Essi Luttinen & Janne Lehmusvuo
Director: Janne Lehmusvuo
