Anu KOMSI as Meyerbeer's "L’étoile du nord"

In the frame of the celebrations of Finland's 100th anniversary, Helsinki's Musiikkitalo will show the scenic performance of Giacomo Meyerbeer's "L'étoile du nord" on 11 November 2017. Anu KOMSI sings the titel role, Cathérine (Tsarina Katherine I), who was compared to the pole star, in a production taken over from the Opera Festival Kokkola of summer 2017. The magazine "Opernwelt" wrote about Komsi's presentation in Kokkola: "Voice-wise, it was pure delight: The role of Catherine seems to be composed for Anu Komsi; the further the opera gets, the brighter her coloraturas gleam."

Her partner as Tsar Peter the Great is Michael Leibundgut, the Ostrobothnian Chamber Orchestra playes under the baton of Sakari Oramo.
