Greta productions

Greta Productions (Greta Tuotanto) is a Finnish independent music theatre company that produces concerts, musical theatre, and opera performances.

Greta Productions focuses especially on new experimental forms of music theatre and chamber opera. Most of the Greta Productions shows are designed for touring possibilities, and they are performed not only in theatres and cultural spaces, but also in other spaces such as museums, restaurants, and historically authentic venues.

Greta Productions’ projects are created within each production team and are usually in cooperation with other actors in the cultural sector. Greta Productions has taken responsibility for the cooperation of the independent opera field and the new Helsinki Contemporary Opera Festival, which unites independent opera groups in Finland. The festival takes place annually in August and is part of Helsinki Festival’s program.

 

Greta Productions has its premises in Malminkatu 24 E, Helsinki, which includes a rehearsal studio, a sewing atelier, an office, and costume and props storage. Greta Productions’ studio space and its facilities are rented out at an affordable price to people in the cultural sector.

 

Greta Productions is run by a four-person team, which includes artistic director Reetta Ristimäki, who is responsible for artistic and CEO responsibility, producer Nea Huovinen, sales and marketing manager Rami Meling and digital content creator Ida Hansen. Greta Productions employs around 100 freelancers in its productions every year. The operation is supervised by the government and financed by operating grants from the City of Helsinki and the Arts Promotion Center Finland. In addition, Greta Productions applies for project funding from foundations and looks for collaborators from the cultural sector and the business world.

 

Greta Productions is part of the rainbow-friendly We Speak Gay community. Our company is committed to treating all employees and customers with respect and equality, regardless of gender, race, skin color, age, nationality, religion, culture, or sexual orientation. The goal of the We Speak Gay community is to make Finland even more empathetic and inclusive, the most rainbow-friendly country in the world.
