ESTONIAN SINFONIETTA IN INTERNATIONAL OPERA PRODUCTION

For the anniversary of Åland’s autonomy composer from Iceland, Karólína Eiríksdóttir wrote an opera „Lisbeta -thou shalt not suffer a witch to live” misogyny and superstition. This is musical celebration in which 17th century women accused of witchcraft take power over the logic of hate rhetoric. For Åland's 100th anniversary of autonomy, we are giving Lisbeta and her sisters in woe a voice through a newly written, modern opera, which is idea and production of Kulturföreningen Katrina.

Performances will take place on April 21st and April 22nd at 19 in Helsinki Alexander Theatre.
