Kuopio and the whole lakeland area is the Finland’s top places for its great event offer, and naturally there is no exception in theater entertainment as well. The most famous theater in the region is the Kuopio City Theater, where you can see about 300 high-quality performances annually. From the beginning of September to the end of May, the theater season includes musicals, drama, humor, fars, children’s shows as well as high-quality visiting shows. Entertainment and great emotions are therefore served very versatile – on two different stages. Most of the performances are in Finnish, but language issue does not stop theatrical enjoyment, as many performances, especially the musicals, are full of great things to see – scenes, costumes, dancing – and listen – orchestral music and singing.
At least equally lively is the summer theater life in Capital of Lakeland. The area has dozens of summer theaters, where both professionals and amateurs play in versatile shows. Traditional Finnish summer theater is open air and outdoors. Nowadays, many summer theaters, especially the professional ones, has covered auditorium, and some are even indoors. Most of them, however, offer great theater experiences, as well as beautiful nature sceneries. An important part of Finnish summer theater culture is also to eat grilled sausages and drink coffee from the carton cups during a break.
