I'm not a huge fan of opera myself, but I can appreciate great art and that's what they present. The building is beautiful and the acoustics are very good. From restricted view seats on 3rd balcony row 4 you could see most of the scene...More

Come on time, Swedes are very punctual. The waiting point is the main entrance. Not early – then you'll have to wait outdoors, and it's not very agreeable in winter or even in autumn, the opera house stands on water, may be chilly. And certainly...More

The present Opera House is from 1899. It is a majestic neo-classical building with a magnificent gold foyer and an elegant marble grand staircase leading to a three-tiered auditorium which seats 1,200. This time we booked tickets online for Tosca. Although we didn't get better...More

A marvelous building, both exterior and interior from the 18th century. We enjoyed an excellent performance, had champagne during the pause in the fantastic spaces within the building

Drove past the road in front of Kungliga Operan or the Royal Swedish Opera in Stockholm. Did not really watch any performance there. Just an admirer of the building´s architectural design. It´s a building that one would never miss.

Every opera company should have audiences as appreciative as I witnessed in Stockholm. I will say that the performance of Manon Lescaut was ending in two more shows. I will also state that without a clue about the plot of this particular opera that I...More

Royalty built his grand theater in the late 1700's and King Gustav III's palace was connected to it via the Norrbro Bridge. Our guide patiently answered questions about the history of the theater. Remembering that the French Revolution set the anti-regency mood, this infected other...More
