We went here on Sunday night to see phantom of the opera and it was AMAZING! Everyone should go and see it! The sets were amazing, the singing was great and it was my first opera so i was very pleased with the experience.

The building is also nice and the staff were friendly!

The interior might be wonderful, and the performances too, but as a piece of architecture it is spectacularly ugly. We were only passing through Gothenburg, and somewhat spoiled by having been at Copenhagen's stunning Opera House two days before, and on our way to Oslo's equally amazing house the next day.

saw a good show of "Chess", - but it was still a bit annoying to not get a word of the dialogues (it was all in swedish) - of course, i knew that before. - actors and singers of good quality! The opera house is easy to book, - all rows are perfectly shaped to have an excellent view!

Visiting the opera is often worth it's price, the staff is very service minded, both at closets and in bars. There are a number of hosts roaming the floor, ready for questions and guiding. All jackets, coats etc. must be stored in closets for a small fee. Even if there are a number of such closets, the queues can be quite long. Bring cash for fast service.

The opera hall itself is quite large, but not very spacious. It's about four stories high, having balconies on all floors, except the first one. I've found that the best seats are probably on second or third row. Having places on first row, it can be hard to hear the lyrics, since the symphonic orchestra is situated just below first row.

During the break, all available staff serves drinks and snacks, even in closets. Gaining access to toilets during the break can be a bit of a hell, since the toilet areas are quite small. It's probably best to take the elevator to the top floor, on each far side of the balcony, there are available toilets with not so long queues.

This riverside opera house is located at the Lilla Bommen district. It was built in 1994.

With its stalls and balconies, the auditorium has 1,301 seats. The acoustics is excellent.

We were watching Mozart's comedy opera 'Le Nozze di Figaro'. It was brilliant.

I have been to Göteborgs opera many times, and I am still amazed by the quality of the performances.

The musicals draw the crowds, the operas are exceptional for music lovers, and the ballet company deserves to get a greater audience.

Get a ticket, and enjoy.

Tip: the bar upstairs has great views over the city

Although I was not able to attend an actual performance while in Goteburg, I did take a walk throughout the area and was able to go inside the building for a look. It's a fairly new addition in an area where quite a bit of exciting development is happening-and the building itself is well worth the walk. It faces the water-with lots of places to sit and enjoy! A very nice area to simply explore, and although I wasn't able to attend anything, I found ticket prices to be quite reasonable.

We were here on a business lunch with a large group of 25. Due to the group we had to pre-order our lunch which worked out well. Helpful staff with the booking and changing the time of the booking. For the price of their lunch, location and atmosphere it is definitely worth a few more business lunches here. Perhaps the staff could be a little bit more attentive but overall a great experience.

Before you go in there... take a walk around the operahuse and enjoy the harbour. Take a glass of wine and a classic Swedish shrimp sandwish in the bar. Enjoy the architecture before you enter the aula. I have to say ... the Opera house of Gothenburg it´s really really good to make the stage art to really art! Enjoy!

Göteborg Opera impressive in form and grandeur, its shape seems a ship will split Gota canal waters ... Glass, grandeur, modern so in three words define this wonderful building.
