The Red Line is based on a 1908 novel in which Finnish peasants are promised a Utopia in return for their votes. From our vantage point in time we can sympathise with their aspirations yet shudder at their realisation.Sallinen manages to convey his own sympathy with their condition in music which makes no demands on anyone tuned to contemporary opera in which words always come first. Acting is strong,singing mostly so. The partially stylised production is successful
