audience outreach

For young people

On this page you’ll learn about the performances and services we offer for young people.

Our activities for young people

In the Limelight Presents is an amateur music theatre troupe for 12 to 16 year-olds. Under the guidance of professionals, members of the troupe ideate and produce a music theatre performance in a style of their choice. Each year, new members are selected based on applications.

A Day in the Life of a Ballet Dancer offers 7 to 12 year-olds a glimpse of the daily routines of a professional ballet dancer at work.

Guided tours behind the scenes at the Opera House showcase the wide-ranging expertise that brings our successful performances to life. Tickets for guided tours can be purchased from our online store (site and tours are available only in Finnish). We organise tours for school groups upon request.

We also take part in the Art Testers culture education program, which gives 8th graders the opportunity to watch opera and ballet performances. Read more about Art Testers at the Opera House.
