2:00 PM House of Finland Lawn Program The House of Finland showcases typical music, dance, costumes, arts and crafts, and ethnic foods highlighting the country's rich culture.

Our singing of folk songs from centuries ago is typically accompanied by the violin, the accordion and Finland's own national instrument—the kantele. This ancient string instrument, sounding somewhat similar to a lute, but constructed to be played on a table or on your lap, sounds like the mournful, haunting melodies of the northern forests and lakes. Finnish youngsters are always part of the scene, showing off their own honoring of our traditions passed on from generation to generation. Come see them sing, dance and play music as it used to be in towns and villages back when. Perhaps you might hear a rendition of Jean Sibelius' Finlandia, famous the world over!

2:00 PM Stage: Anna In The Tropics Passions and ill-fated love ignite when a charismatic new lector comes to the Ybor City cigar factory to read to the workers. Romances flare and marriages explode when he begins reading the novel Anna Karenina and the scandalous lives of Tolstoy's characters become dangerously intertwined with the lives of his listeners.

Winner of the 2003 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, Nilo Cruz' Anna in the Tropics is a steamy, lyrical plunge into the whirlpools of imagination and love. CJ Keith Directs.

Admission/Cost: $15 - $20

Don Powell Theatre
