impressive!

It's worth popping in even for a few minutes to admire the gorgeous interior full of golden frills on the walls and the ceilings! Breath-taking - especially the main stairs!

My birthday treat was lunch at the opera house, in sumptuous surroundings. A lovely room with chandeliers and mirrors. The food was delicious and to top it all we had an opera singer and pianist to entertain us. I would recommend this lunch for any opera lovers, or just music lovers to enjoy.

So gorgeous, can't believe I had never gone sooner. Lovely architecture, excellent orchestra and the company for the ballet we saw were so talented. We got there too close to curtain call so got escorted in and I think had better seats than we paid for. Went with a friend who had a student discount, but for parents I think... More

The Opera by itself is really amazing and pretty and I'm pretty sure you get a good view whatever your seat because of the way it's build. The only con I have is that I thought I was going to see an opera and it was a ballet.

The Stockholm Opera (Operan) was opened in 1892 and is in the classical European style of its counterparts in Vienna, Paris and St Petersburg (though a little less grand than these). It is well worth seeing and if you can't join a tour then purchase a ticket for a daytime performance of opera or ballet for students. The tickets are... More

Great performance. We got cheap tickets as we sat on gallery. It was not sold out performance so we had plenty seats to choose from and we saw perfectly. To go to golden foie was amazing and I highly recommend not to miss that opportunity.

An unqualified delight in a traditional Grand Opera House. The standing ovation at the conclusion was in itself an experience and so well deserved

The building is stunning and do check out the wonderful art on the stairways. The ballet and orchestra were excellent! So glad I was able to go!

World-class opera and ballet - good singers, amazing dancers, interior and ambience are more fun than awe-inspiring, since it was built (with lots of pomp) at the end of the XIX century (so less inspiring and more gaudy than older theaters). I saw Don Giovanni, Raymonda, Bill, Dialogues of the Karmelites and Madam Butterfly - and all were very well... More
