Hanaholmen Swedish-Finnish Cultural Centre and Svenska Kulturfonden invited Victoria and Daniel to Opera Höstsonaten (Autumn Sonata) on the occasion of Finland's 100th anniversary at the Finnish National Opera in Helsinki on 16th September. Hanaholmen's ceo Gunvor Kronman has met Victoria before and describes her as a gorgeous woman. Victoria and Daniel have decided that only Victoria comes to Helsinki. She arrives on Saturday to the Opera and leaves back to Sweden on Sunday morning.

Hanaholmen's ceo Gunvor Kronman said to finnish YLE news:
- This is a delightful surprise for us. We have recently received confirmation that Crown Princess Victoria accepts our invitation and we are now preparing the visit together with the Court and the Swedish Embassy in Finland.
Victoria attended at Future Forum in Hanaholmen in November 2014 and met ceo Gunvor Kronman.
Sebastian Fagerlund's opera, Höstsonaten, Autumn Sonata, is based on Ingmar Bergman's classic film with the same name. Swedish mezzosoprano Anne Sofie von Otter sings the main role at the opera.
- This work is a strong example of the cultural connections of Finland and Sweden. The Bergman film on the background and the brilliant diva, Anne Sofie von Otter, link the Finnish National Opera's production smoothly to Sweden.
- Princess Victoria represents our joint future and is a particularly pleasant guest. And the visit gives a special touch for the public at the opera that night, says Kronman.

Victoria arrives this afternoon to Helsinki to see Opera Höstsonaten (Autumn Sonata) at the Finnish National Opera on the occasion of Finland's 100th anniversary. Victoria has been invited by Hanaholmen Swedish-Finnish Cultural Centre and Svenska Kulturfonden (The Swedish Cultural Foundation in Finland).
Höstsonaten is a new finnish opera, composed by Sebastian Fagerlund. It is based on Ingmar Bergman's classic film with the same name. Swedish mezzosoprano Anne Sofie von Otter sings the main role at the opera.

The finnish press tells that people can see Victoria in Helsinki only by a glimpse. Victoria comes to the Opera (starting at 18.00) by car straight from the airport. She doesn't move elsewhere in Helsinki, and goes by car.
- She is brought to the opera door where she goes in, says Maria Romantschuk, programme director of the Hanaholmen Swedish-Finnish Cultural Centre.
There may be the only chance of seeing the prinsess.
- She just comes out of the car and goes into the opera, Romantschuk says.
The media can photograph the crown princess shortly in the opera, but she doesn't give interviews.
Katja Jokinen, Head of Communications of the Finnish National Opera and Ballet, wasn't able to say on Friday whether other opera viewers could see the crown princess.
Romantschuk tells that after the opera performance the crown princess has program organized by the Embassy of Sweden in Finland.
The princess arrives alone and stays the night in Finland. She will return to Sweden the next morning, says Embassy Counselor Jan Nyberg from the Embassy of Sweden in Finland.
- She was invited a long time ago. She decided to come and celebrate the centenary of Finland, says Nyberg.
According to Romantschuk, the hosts were very happy about that the crown princess accepted the invitation.
- This is where she participates in the celebration of 100th anniversary of Finland.

Iltalehti speculates if Victoria visits also Meeri Koutaniemi's photo exhibition which is shown at the foyer or the National Opera. And if Victoria stays also this time at Hotel Haven, where she and Daniel stayed on their visit to Finland.

Iltasanomat tells that according to the information they have got, there will be a small event after the opera, in which attend in addition to Victoria the hosts of the visit, ambassador Anders Ahnlid and the main performers of the opera. Iltasanomat also highlights that Victoria uses regular flights, and that is why she returns to Sweden on Sunday, not today.

Ambassador Ahnlid's photos at his Facebook
"A memorable evening with Höstsonaten at Finnish National Opera to celebrate Finland's 100 years of independence in the presence of H.R.H. Crown Princess Victoria was finished with a nice visit to our Swedish Embassy in Helsinki!"

Nasima Razmyar, the Deputy Mayor for Culture and Leisure of the City of Helsinki, at her Twitter
"Thanks for a nice evening. The Crown Princess is a brilliant person who brings light and joy with her."
Nasima Razmyar at her Instagram
"I got a pleasure to meet Crown Princess Victoria yesterday. Her charisma and character make an indelible impression. In addition, I experienced a real emotional experience in Höstsonaten opera, The Financial Times has given a full five stars and completely for the reason. Fine opera. Fine night."

Sebastian Fagerlund, the composer of Opera Höstsonaten, at his Twitter
"Happy and touched that Crown Princess Victoria was present at the opera #Höstsonaten A warm thanks to @SveAmbFI for memorable reception"

Writer and columnist Kaj Korkea-aho at his Instagram
"Thanks to Sweden's Embassy and Ambassador Anders Ahnlid for a brilliant evening of interesting meetings and conversations. An especially great pleasure was to meet Crown Princess Victoria, what a charismatic inspirator!"

Expressen's fashion expert Magda Omerspahic:
- Great for Victoria to showcase Swedish design as often as she actually does when she travels abroad. She matches a floral skirt from Camilla Thulin gorgeously with a powdery blouse from Daisy Grace. Both the a-line dress and the details of the sleeves feel right.
- This is actually not the first time Victoria carries exactly this outfit. Last we saw it when the Danish Crown Prince couple was visiting Stockholm this spring. Great that it is recycled!

Finnish press about Victoria's visit to the Finnish National Opera:
Gunvor Kronman, the ceo of Hanaholmen Swedish-Finnish Cultural Centre, told to Iltalehti, that everything went as planned. Even the sun came through when Victoria stepped out of the car. This was a short visit, so it wasn't planned for months, but still there are many things to notice. Victoria had her own bodyguards, but also the finnish police secured her visit. Kronman tells that she talked with Victoria a few times during the visit, about the opera and also other things. Kronman tells that they discussed about icehockey and the World Championships in Denmark.

Gunvor Kronman told to Iltasanomat, that everything went really well. The atmosphere was cheerful and wonderful. The opera performance (Höstsonaten) is not happy, but it is a fantastic and artistic entity. The princess was impressed. Mother-daughter relationship and father-child relationship touch universally everyone, Kronman describes.
After the opera, the evening continued in nice and relaxed event at the Swedish Embassy. Among the dinner guests were renowned Finnish artists with whom Victoria was talking unrestrainedly during the evening.
- The Crown Princess met Finnish writers and musicians, as well as key political figures, said Kronman, adding that Victoria also had a lot of people on her own age to talk with.
Crown Princess sat at dinner with Joachim Thibblin, the director of Svenska Teatern and Leif Jakobsson, the director of Swedish Cultural Foundation in Finland. Free conversation was held in swedish the whole evening.
- It was very relaxed association. The Crown Princess likes Finland enormously and enjoys these visits, says Kronman.
Kronman has met Crown Princess Victoria several times through her job. She describes Victoria as a truly charming and nice person.
- She is very warm and takes all the situations with the necessary seriousness. She is always interested in other people and phenomenons, says Kronman.
