KALEVALA
THE MUSICAL

A Story of Ancient Legends
Kalevala The Musical is a story of ancient legends, told by the spirits of the haunted forest of Kalevala. The musical is inspired by the national epic poem of Finland. The tales of Kalevala were passed down through song for generations until they were finally collected in a book of poems by Elias Lonnrot in 1835. Since then Kalevala has been a source of inspiration to many fantasy authors, including J.R.R. Tolkien and widely cherished across the world. Kalevala the Musical is composed and written by Johanna Telander.

DIVERSE COMMUNITY

The musical is composed by New York-based, Finnish composer Johanna Telander who, as an immigrant herself, has always wanted to create opportunities for international talent. Past concerts and readings have included talent from many cultural and national backgrounds. We have loved the collaborations with our Finnish, Japanese, Israeli, Estonian, Chinese-Hawaiian American, and Latino talent!  We plan to continue providing opportunities to be creative and to include storytellers from all backgrounds both on and off stage in this globally progressive way.
