Hello there! Sorry for the late reply. I am going to move to Helsinki in September. I know it's a long time..but I thought to start to meet new people in this forum and share my passion for Opera therefore we might meet and go together.

I saw the season for this year..quite interesting, isn't it? Have you already seen anyhing? if yes, what? :D

Yes, I am :lightbulb:
I have only been around two weeks myself, so I don't know the ropes yet.
I am happy to join in or organise something.

Hi,

I love going to the opera here but I usually have trouble finding companions, so if you are still looking for opera buddies I am available. :) I am a Hungarian girl, just turned 28 and I have been living and working in Helsinki since 2011. Please feel free to PM me if you'd like more info.

The last opera I saw here was Duke Bluebeard’s Castle / I pagliacci, few months ago. They were really good, I was surprised of how well the singers pronounced the Hungarian words in the Bartók one. :)

Unfortunately for opera fans the summer break will start now but in the fall they start with Carmen! I love that one, I will certainly go see it!

Hi!

Here I am posting 3 years later. :) Laura, I actually went to see Don Giovanni in 2013 .. alone. Nobody I asked was interested to go and I forgot to check back here.

I am still very much enjoying going to see Opera and Ballet performances in Helsinki, and still having difficulties convincing friends to join me.

So, if you are still in Finland and still interested to find opera buddies, I am here.
