Wonderful Building

An absolutely stunning building, photographs don't do it justice. If you get the chance do the inside tour, it is well worth it.

Verdis Otello is one of the best performances staged in Operan. Malin Byström (Desdemona) was marvelous. Alexander Vedernikov (conductor) was perfect. Enjoyed every minute of it

Most visitors to Stockholm would probably leave this attraction out, and that would be a mistake. They have twice daily tours on weekdays, and take you behind the stage, on the stage to all the rehearsal rooms etc. The guide we had was exceptional. He was a retired ballet dancer, and was very passionate about the opera house and it's... More

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.
