Encore is the Finnish National Opera and Ballet performance database, containing information on opera and ballet performances of the FNOB and its predecessors, Kotimainen Ooppera (the Domestic Opera) and Suomalainen Ooppera (the Finnish Opera), since 1911. There is a comprehensive search function to help find information about works performed and production teams.
The information is organised onto three levels: works, productions and performances. Individual persons and groups of performers may also be used as search terms.
Works: The Works level contains information about which operas and ballets have been performed at the FNOB. Details include the title of the work and the name of the composer, and for ballets the choreographer. There are links to the FNOB production(s) of the work in question.
Productions: Every work listed at the Works level has been performed at the FNO in one or more productions. The Productions level contains information about the team that created the production: the director, set designer, costume designer, etc. Details include the premiere date and other performance dates, which also provide links to performance-specific information.
Performances: The Performances level contains information about which performers appeared in which roles in which performance, and other details.
Every name mentioned is a link to a Person page, where the roles or production history of a particular individual can be viewed.
Persons and Performer Groups: Searching for a specific individual or group will bring up details about which productions and performances they have taken part in.
