The authors of the opera comedy The Fabulous Bäckström Brothers have now set their sights on the greatest story of all. They transform Patrick Barlow’s Christmas hit comedy The Messiah into an elegant but hilarious production where British satire mixes with precision-crafted physical comedy and incredibly beautiful classical music.

The director of the production is Marc Gassot, a Finnish-French master of mime and clownery. The performers include the aforementioned fabulous Bäckström brothers, Jouni and Petri, with the added woman energy of Reetta Ristimäki.

Joint production by The Fabulous Bäckström Brothers and the Finnish National Opera.

The Messiah will return to the program before Christmas, updated information on the performance times and places  under Tour link.
