Faust at Savonlinna Opera Festival 2018

Faust returns to the Savonlinna repertoire after a long interval, in a revised version by Stage Director Vilppu Kiljunen, and choreographed by Petri Kekoni.

Dance and movement plays a crucial role in the three hour long opera via the choreography of an 80-person choir and professional dancers. The three dancers, ‘Mefisto angels’ Meeri Lempiäinen (ent. Altmets), Anna Stenberg, Satu Rinnetmäki represent the newest members of Petri Kekoni Company. 

The Faust first premiered in Savonlinna Opera Festival in 1999.
