The exterior of the opera building is quite ugly, but it is nice inside. I saw a great ballet performance there.

We went there for the Russian opera "The Nose". The building is quite impressive, large and modern. The seats were very comfortable and we enjoyed the fact that the languages displayed were not only the national ones being Finnish and Swedish but also English.
