Enjoy opera in a castle on Finnish island


Rounding out the 2013 season were Saint-Saens’ "Samson and Delilah" and Tchaikovsky’s "Eugene Onegin," a production of the Mikailovsky Theatre of St. Petersburg, Russia, which also produced "A Masked Ball."

The 2014 season runs from July 4 through August 2 with six operas and Mozart’s "Requiem," which will be held in nearby Kerimaki in the world’s largest wooden church. The acoustics there are expected to be superb as well.
