Flying Dutchman

28.8.2012

I wrote a post earlier this summer and told that I need both nature and cultural experiences for my wellbeing. That`s true although lately you have seen more pictures about me and my family`s nature experiences. Here`s one memorable cultural experience from this summer.

It was an opera experience (c/o), “Flying Dutchman”, and I went there with my little sister Marianne. The storyline in Flying Dutchman is very traditional – you can read a little about it here. Despite the traditionality I found our opera experience nice and relaxing – partly because of the good opera, partly because of the surroundings. I don`t know a better place for an opera experience than Olavinlinna castle. The medieval atmosphere of the castle makes the opera experience just perfect!

You’ll find more information about Savonlinna opera festival here.

Here are some pictures about me and Marianne`s opera experience and also some video scenes from Flying Dutchman.
