Our musical of season 2024-2025 is Rajaton rakkaus – Boundkes Love. It is a heavenly musical comedy set to the music of late Finnish artists.
Coroner Anna Harju starts her working day with usual routine tasks. The day takes a new turn when a surprising couple enters her life from across the border: the over-optimistic Olavi Virta and Kiiski Topi Sorsakoski from the opposite shore. The gentlemen want Anna to find out the reason for the artists’ premature deaths.
Tired of her boring life, Anna accepts the task after some negotiations. A fairytale journey towards the unknown begins. The sparks of infatuation between Anna and Olav melt into a love that is both absolutely forbidden and completely justified at the same time. The lovers realize that before long their paths will part. Do they dare to believe in a miracle?
Boundless love transports the viewer with the power of music on an unforgettable journey between life and death. The musical comedy offers a touch of mysticism and lots of laughs, but also touching moments and deep emotions.
On stage, the tangoking Petri Hervanto Olavi Virtana and our talented cast will perform the beloved hits of late Finnish artists with our brilliant live band.

Written dy Mika Räinä, directed by Ville-Veikko Valtanen.
