Finnish National Ballet: The Seven Brothers

Contemporary dance|Ballet

The classic Finnish tale details the rough lives of the unruly Jukola brothers. The ballet version is one of the landmark works of the Finnish National Ballet.

Where there’s a will, there’s a way. The Seven Brothers by Aleksis Kivi is a classic tale known to all Finnish people, a seminal work in Finnish literature and as such regarded as the national novel. Originally completed for the Finnish National Ballet in 1980, the Seven Brothers is one of the landmark works of the Finnish ballet repertoire. The beloved choreography classic will return to the Finnish National Ballet stage to mark the centenary celebrations.

“I want my dance language to reflect the brothers’ world, rustic and down-to-earth but aspirational.”
– Marjo Kuusela, choreographer
