FYI, Finnish National Opera presents a "dance adventure" based on J.R.R. Tolkien's beloved classic "The Hobbit".

The premiere is tomorrow (26th Oct).

The music in the presentation has been composed by one of the most famous composers in Finland, Aulis Sallinen, whose Symphony No. 7 is called "The Dreams of Gandalf". Excerpts from this symphony are included in this presentation.
