Tampereen ylioppilasteatteri

Virgo, a local musical that premiered in 1997 is finally coming home to Tampere with a whole new production at Tampereen ylioppilasteatteri. The musical is written by Heikki Salo, and is composed by Costello Hautamäki, known from the rock band Popeda. The original 1997 production was a collaborative effort by Tampere Theatre, City of Tampere, and local employment authorities, and was made to provide jobs for over a hundred young people. Many of those people have since gone to have a career in the performing arts industry. The new production at Tampereen ylioppilasteatteri is directed by Pyry Keto, the music is directed and arranged by Joona Lehto, and the choreography is by Ida Pajunen.
