Describe the brief/objective of the direct campaign.
Folkoperan is a small independent opera house in Stockholm.
They receive grants from the Swedish national Council for Cultural affairs, Stockholm county and Stockholm city, Therefore it’s important to awaken interest on the part of existing and potential sponsors, journalists and other opinion-leaders within the cultural establishment to attend the premier, so that there’s a buzz about the operetta on TV and other media.
To promote that Folkoperan run two operas every other day.

Describe the creative solution to the brief/objective with reference to the projected response rates and desired outcome.
-Invitations in the form of a poetic love letter were sent to press and opinion makers. Typed, perfumed and filled with rose petals.
-Posters and magazine ads showed tenderly entwined instruments.
-And for the cinema promotion, the weekend before the premier, the instruments went even further in showing their affection. In the crescendo of the film, the cast from the opera – sitting with in the audience pretending to be regular cinema goers – stood up and sang and handed out invitations

Explain why the creative execution was relevant to the product or service.
This spring they played two classic operas about love: The Marriage of Figaro and the Elixir of Love. The two operas were promoted with one integrated campaign – Folkoperan in love..

Describe the results in as much detail as possible with particular reference to the RESPONSE of the target audience including deliverability statistics, response rates, click throughs, sales cost per response, relationships built and overall return on investment.
All 589 seats where filled at the opening nights. The opera got a lot of attention in press.
