“Under the Northern Lights” is a new Christmas-spirited musical play which tells about a winter evening in a family that lived in Lapland in the 15th century. Animals in the forest, the starry sky along with the northern lights offer an astonishing display to the Lappish teepee villagers.
The southern tradesmen have spread their trips up to the northernmost areas in Lapland. New things and ideas start changing the traditional arctic life style. The villagers are celebrating their first real Christmas.
The fictitious story describes the human longing for one another, and reminds us of the reality that life is beyond our senses and understanding. It means much more than we can ever observe, touch or feel with our senses.
The fresh music of the orchestra is played by some ancient Finnish traditional instruments like the kantele, the bowed lyre and the frame drum.
