2019 Savonlinna Opera Festival - Olavinlinna Castle

The magnificent Olavinlinna Castle, built in 1475 on an island connecting two lakes in the Finnish city of Savonlinna, is an opera venue unlike any other. Taking place in the courtyard, covered over and with excellent acoustics, the operas hosted at the festival each summer are renowned the world over not just for their quality, but also for this remarkable setting.

The opera performances begin at 19.00. The performances are held in the main, covered courtyard. The orchestra is in a pit in front of the stage.

Transport to the opera performances and concerts is provided (for a charge of €4.00) from the main Savonlinna hotels to the Castle and back.
