CEO and Artistic Director Opera Birgitta Svendén welcomes everyone and promises all visitors will be well looked after.

“Welcome back to experiencing the magic of opera and ballet live again!”

The autumn programme will be issued in the middle of August in conjunction with a press conference in the presence of the appointed artistic directors: Michael Cavanagh, new Artistic Director Opera, and Ellen Lamm, new Artistic Director at Young at the Opera, as well as Music Director Alan Gilbert.

The Royal Swedish Opera will open to the public even if only fifty people are allowed in the audience.

In a recently released interview, Birgitta Svendén talks about the reopening of the Opera House in the autumn. She looks back over the nearly fifteen months that have passed since Operan shut down all activities and events for visitors in March 2020. What lessons have been learned and what has been the impact of Operan Play?
