Conjuring up a Hollywood show atmosphere are radiant actor-vocalists Anna-Maija Tuokko and Mikko Leppilampi. Their no-holds-barred interpretations and fantastic orchestral arrangements will fly you straight to some of the most memorable scenes, from New York to idyllic romantic love in the footsteps of such legends as Marilyn Monroe, Elton John and Frank Sinatra.
