The orchestra is conducted by Jukka Untamala and on the stage we will see professional circus artists of the Kuopio Circus performing juggling, rope walking, acrobatics and hoops with led lights among others. The programme consists of Andrea Tarrodi’s Lucioles, Einar Englund’s White Reindeer Suite and Manuel de Falla’s El Amor Brujo with the flamcenco vocalist Anna Murtola.
