What a year 2019 has been!
This year has been a successful, happy and a very busy year for me.
Disney’s THE LITTLE MERMAID premiered in Helsinki, Finland with sold out performances and rave reviews:
”This musical might very well be the most beautiful theatre Finland has ever seen!” – Mari Koppinen / Helsingin Sanomat
THE SECRET GARDEN opened at Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts in November, and I got to work with some of the future hopes of London’s West End.
LES MISÉRABLES started its 3rd sold out year in Estonia! The final performance was played December 15th, 2019. I will miss this production with all my heart.
KINKY BOOTS had a sold out run at the Helsinki City Theatre! The final performance was on May 11th, 2019. I’m extremely happy that this production transfers to Tampere in 2020 – we open September 26th, 2020!
BILLY ELLIOT started its 2nd year in Tampere, and concluded its run on November 23rd. I miss all the cast members already too much.
While working with all these magnificent productions, I have been preparing for the incredibly busy 2020. I also put on my new company – Harjanne Company Ltd. which turns 1-year-old already on January 16th, 2020.
I am lucky to collaborate with so many fantastic international creative talents, as well as local stunning performers. I also want to thank every single one of you for your continuous support and love. And a special thanks to everyone who has seen any of my productions in 2019. Thank you for going to theatre, folks!
I’m looking forward to all the new challenges and exciting projects life has to offer!
