Just walking by, at the end of a long walking day, and went in, what a bonus. Getting the tour you learn so much about the history of the house, as well as the amazing architecture. Was good to learn that ABBA performed Dancing Queen on the stage when the King married the Queen. So wonderful costuming as well.

We took the English language tour on July 30, and had a great time. First and foremost, we lucked out with the guide - he was a former member of the Swedish Royal Ballet, had performed in the Opera House many times, and therefore provided a truly informative and entertaining perspective. We had the opportunity to see the hall itself,... More

I visited twice, once to see La Traviata, and then Carmen. The Opera house is gorgeous! I would definitely encourage a visit and take a tour(which was very thorough and informative) or see a performance. The Swedish government subsidizes up to 23% of the cost of a ticket, so the best ticket in the house is only $100 USD!! The... More

I'm bias in this since I've had classes with the tuba player there, but that doesn't matter. I've seen Lohengrin and The magic flute there and they were both fantastic! Good companies and a VERY professional orchestra with good sound. The opera house itself is beautiful and they offer guided tours around the opera, which I recommend!

During August 2015 , off season for the opera , we bought tickets - at the entrance - for the Mozart summer concerts which include a drink on the terrace followed by a concert in one of the "salons " every afternoon at 17:00. We were also able to walk around and visit this majestic building. I love opera and... More

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
