Reviews & Press

 
 

Savonlinna Opera Festival - Puccini - Madama Butterfly

Not only then, but throughout, the orchestra sounded like veterans of the opera house, and the chorus is of similar calibre. Kalle Kuusava is the latest conductor from Helsinki’s extraordinary Sibelius Academy production line, and his command and commitment here was worthy of his famous predecessors
