Today is a big day in my home town Savonlinna. The reason is the world premiere of Free Will opera. Free Will is the world`s first Internet opera which is made by an open, international online community called Opera By You.
I was happy to get a ticket from Savonlinna Opera Festival (c/o) to the rehearsal of Free Will. Here are some pictures about my opera day. After that I can only say that I warmly recommend Free Will and I`m so proud of my home town and country!
I read the Free Will libretto and instantly get interested in this refreshingly modern and current 21st century opera
Savonlinna Opera Festival is already 100 years old
Henri and Unna took me to the opera rehearsal with the boat
Savonlinna Opera Festival is held in Olavinlinna castle which is build in 1475
There`s heaven in Free Will…
….where the Free Will of people and listening to your heart is emphasized.
Then there is hell in Free Will…
…where money is the most important thing.
And in between there is the life on Earth
Free Will is about saving the world
As a saviors the angels choose Mozart, Joan of Arc and Oscar Wilde
First everything seems to go well…
…and people on Earth are celebrating their saviors.
But then the situation changes
Hell sends its own warriors
And the people on Earth start to protest against the state of the world. But enough with the Free Will plot. To see and know more you need to see the opera by yourself!
We are the ones who decide – Remember that!
