    The opera Flash Flash by Juhani Nuorvala is to be premiered on 9 February, at next year’s Musica nova Helsinki. There will be two performances, after which it will enter the repertoire of the Espoo Theatre with four more. The production will be directed by Erik Söderblom, with a cast that includes Tuuli Lindeberg, David Hackston, Martti Anttila and Sampo Haapaniemi.
    Only one section of the opera dating from 2005 has so far been heard. It has also been called the Warhol Opera, because the English libretto by Juha Siltanen is an exhilarating rewind of the life of Andy Warhol. The music is a fearless combination of classical, minimalist and pop.
