Once again we have been to the Opera to be entertained and got the most you can from an evening!! Splendid!! This is the best institution Gothenburg has and absolute worth a visit no matter what's up on the "menu". You can always expect a wonderful time!!

The temptation of directors to update operas and make them fit into current idioms seems to be a virus infecting most opera houses these days. Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk, by Dmitri Shostakovich, written when only 29 certainly has caused controversy since its pasting by Pravda after Stalin left the Opera in disgust. But unlike the shrieking and quacking, hoots and growls as the critique was then, this night was certainly far more than that, the Gothenburg Opera, even topped it with full frontal nudity of men showering, quite realistic rape and sex scenes But in spite of all this, what a great evening of top performance, great voices, in particular the bass of the father in law, wonderful orchestra, especially some of the solo parts of bassoon, clarinet and piccolo that just enhanced the performance of the vocalists. Shame I don't live in Gothenburg to have this enjoyment more often. Thank You again Mara and Indra, a fantastic evening.

Wonderful music, unattractive architecture. The builders had made poor use of good situation. Untidy interior, but good main scene.

A regular visitor to the Opera since 1994, we see every premiere. The annual musical is very inviting for 'newbies', the operas and operettas are of good quality, but the secret of our local opera house is it's dance company.

It's no classical ballet company, but rather a modern dance company, but they are really dedicated and very good at what they do.

I chanced upon a jazz band that played at the foyer whilst I was enjoying coffee and (Swedish grandma's) cake there. Cost of coffee and cake was 49 kroners but the view of the harbour was priceless. It was a clear day and the view was spectacular. This is totally unheard of in the middle of winter in Gothenburg so I was dreadfully lucky that day. I watched "Sleeping Beauty" by Mats Ek in the evening and I was disappointed that the ticket sales staff did not mention that the seat has a partially blocked view. But the brilliant performance by the cast of Gothenburg Ballet made up for it.
