Nice , large white building. Is a Swedish language theatre in Helsinki, located at the end of Esplanade park. Is also the first theatre of Finland. Many pieces of incidental music by Jean Sibelius had their premier in the theatre.

5+ points for the Mamma Mia show that was exactly what our stressed minds needed. It didn't even matter that all of us didn't understand swedish that well. 4 points for the atmosphere of the old building and 3- for the interval service. The system...More
