In November, the Helsinki Baroque Orchestra is pleased to present the opera event of the year! Mozart’s unsurpassed masterpiece Idomeneo contains everything you could wish for in an opera: the widest possible range of styles and situations, a rich collection of exquisite performances unique in the composer’s oeuvre, a thoroughly virtuosic and colourful orchestral suite with captivating ballet and chamber music gems, a spectacular choral part…

The themes of the clash of cultures, old and new, war and peace, love and duty will appeal to the contemporary listener. Idomeneo will be heard in Finland for the first time since the 1980s; the original version of the work is still unpublished. Performances at Helsinki Music Centre 10 November at 16:00 and 12 November at 19:00. Performances also on 16 November 14:15 at the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam and on 17 November at the Herne in Germany.

The traditional Christmas concert will take place in the Helsinki Music Centre on 22 December at 19:00. Haydn’s Eszterháza season of operas will feature the masterpiece L’Infedeltà delusa to a libretto by Coltellini, in which evil gets its reward and all good and warm spirits. Ella Smith stars in the lead role of this 18th century romantic comedy in her first visit to Finland. The orchestra is the Orfeo Orchestra conducted by György Vashegyi.
