Speak the language of culture

Today´s theatre culture in the Vaasa region is more diverse than ever. The performances at Vaasa City Theatre consist of a familiar combination of classics, musicals and children’s theatre. Wasa Theatre recently reopened after an extensive renovation project, making the venue even more impressive than before. The language barrier will no longer be a problem as many of the performances can be enjoyed both in Finnish and in Swedish thanks to the adaptation of subtitles.

There are also performances in English organised by Ritz Vaasa and others. The event calendar gives more information about the selection.
