Lemmikki – mini musical was the second musical I composed, but the very first musical I wrote myself. Lemmikki is a Finnish name, but the word also translates as “pet”.

Lemmikki tells a story about a cow called – you guessed it – Lemmikki, who is in love with their master. Together with the other two residents of the stable, Lemmikki deals with the painful dilemma of one-sided – and even impossible love.

The musical featured Oona Airola, Annuliina Ikäheimo and Annamaria Karhulahti and it premiered at Helsinki’s Kellariteatteri in 2015.

The band: Volter Putro, Tuuli Kainulainen, Annika Furstenborg, Helena Dumell, Marja-Helena Ojanperä, Antto Hinkkanen / Ernest Lawson, Olli Salmi and Juhana Lehtiniemi.

Costume design: Mirva Mietala and Mirei Kato.
