On Stage in Finland Now!

Finnish theatre going virtual? Most Finnish theatres  remain closed to the public due to Covid-19 restrictions. We have picked some performances you can enjoy at home both live and on-demand.  At TINFO, we can’t wait for "the new normal" to begin. In pre-Covid Finland, almost 1,000 new plays appeared on stage  each year, produced by both professional and amateur theatres and groups.
