Additional concert: This night I am not afraid to walk through the dark
Seela Sella actor
Pia Freund soprano
Kristian Attila piano
Legendary Finnish stage actress Seela Sella reads extracts from letters of well-known artist couples in a programme combining music and poetry. Exploring the lives and sentiments of artist couples such as the Sibeliuses and the Kuulas, the programme illustrates what it is like to be alone and together, to grow and to let go, to live amidst creation and destruction. Gems of Finnish vocal music old and new engage in dialogue with letters by Aino Sibelius and Alma Kuula and with poems by Katri Vala, L. Onerva and Aila Meriluoto. The music featured is by Sibelius, Kuula, Madetoja, Kilpinen, Attila and Ilkka Kuusisto.

There is no interval as such, but a restroom break can be taken while the performers change their clothes. We will manage the traffic so that we can avoid congregating and queuing during the concert.
