Festival Details - "Innocence"...

Start: Friday, January 29, 2021 7:00PM
End: TBD

Premiere at the Finnish National Opera in January 2021

A wedding party is underway in Helsinki, but the groom’s family has a dark secret. When the events from a decade ago begin to unravel, the guests face a moment of truth.

Innocence, a brand-new opera composed by Kaija Saariaho and written by Sofi Oksanen is a ravishing opera that takes place in two parallel periods of time. It deals with the wounds of the past, the passing of time, and the act of letting go.

The world premiere of Innocence will take place at the Festival d’Aix-en-Provence in July 2020. It will be performed at the Finnish National Opera from January 2021. The opera will be conducted by Susanna Mälkki and Clément Mao-Takacs.

Innocence is a co-production of the Festival d’Aix-en-Provence, the Finnish National Opera, the Royal Opera House in London, the Dutch National Opera, and the San Francisco Opera.


This production is included in the season ticket 2020-2021. The sale of individual tickets (for performances that are not included in the season tickets) starts on 1 June. All remaining individual tickets go on sale on 5 August.
