Poor sound and acting!! Bad translation to Swedish. I have seen it several times both in english and swedish and this was not a good production at all compared to the others.

I am a great fan of opera and I must say: I have never been disappointed after having been to the Göteborgsoperan! Always world class singers and what's more: very interesting stagings and decor.

I was delighted to have an opportunity to visit this very interesting opera house--designed to feel like a ship and set in the harbor. The performance of the Magic Flute was very good--especially the outstanding performance by the Queen of the Night--truly virtuoso. Another treat--the prices were quite reasonable.

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.
