Helsinki Festival offers art manifestos and rediscovered classics

Helsinki Festival once again fills the city with culture from 17 August to 3 September 2017. The Festival offers dozens of concerts ranging from classical music to balmy nights in the Huvila Festival Tent, performing arts from Chekhov to mother myths and art expressions from video installations to virtual reality.

At the same time, we will celebrate Finland’s centennial year with rediscovered classics, good deeds and musical greetings from neighbouring lands.

The largest multi-artistic festival in the Nordic countries features the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra performing with top soprano Renée Fleming and the rediscovered interludes of the opera The Nose, conducted by Susanna Mälkki.

The Festival also showcases Peeping Tom’s virtuoso dance theatre as well as Julian Rosefeldt’s famous Manifesto, with star actress Cate Blanchett bringing the art manifestos to life.
