Did you know that there is a strange room in the beautiful old Alexander Theatre? Sometimes you can hear noises through the locked door, a voice crying for help or furniture moving, but no-one is in there. Ever since the theatre opened in 1880, people have been whispering about a ghost, a Russian lieutenant who died in the battle of Bomarsund in 1854. The Alexander Theatre was built with the bricks of the ruined Russian garrison, Bomarsund, and with the bricks came the spirit of Piotr Vassilivitch, searching for his lost love Sophie. Some brave people have gone into the secret room, where things connected with the ghost are hidden, to try and free Piotr from his endless searching. No-one has yet succeeded… Will you?
