Christmas Calendar, day #4

December 4th, track #4: “Alkusoitto” from the musical “Väkivaltamusikaali” by Tampereen Ylioppilasteatteri

Music composed by Juhani Valkama.

When “The Violence Musical” for premiered in the fall of 2008 it was called “the theatre event of the season in Tampere”. The topical musical dealt with different aspects of war, peace and violence with a powerful stage production and beautiful, melodic rock music.

The regime of Vladimir Putin receives its fair share of critique. Unfortunately these themes are as topical as ever, now almost ten years later.
