Start of the 51st Edition of the Tampere Theatre Festival
The Main Programme of Tampere Theatre Festival takes a powerful start with the sold-out Hair performances. If you do not have a ticket for Hair this is a good day to plan ahead the programme for the Festival week.

The internationally acknowledged contemporary Finnish circus group Circo Aereo brings on the stage master mime Marc Gassot with Lion – The Weird and Magical Abracadabra Circus Show. This tribute to circus is spiced with brilliant sprinkles of pantomime and shades of splatter movies. It is a wonderfully deranged concoction of tongue-in-cheek comedy, animal taming, magic and clownery.
Stage: TTT Eino Salmelainen
