We had the pleasure of seeing Aida at the Royal Swedish Opera on a Wednesday evening. It was an almost otherworldly experience. The opera house is a beautiful and classic structure with grand spaces and interesting exhibits of props, costumes and artifacts. We started the...More

I did not go for a performance but simply admired the architecture of this beautiful building. This has been the Swedish national venue for opera and ballet since January 18, 1773. In 1792 the Opera House was the site of the assassination of King Gustav...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
