    (Translated by Google) The Royal Opera, everyday Opera, is Sweden's national stage for opera and ballet / modern dance originating from 1773. The Royal Opera is located in the Norrström district, between Gustav Adolfs torg and Kungsträdgården on Norrmalm in central Stockholm. It changed its name in 1997 from the Royal Theater. (Original) Kungliga Operan, vardagligt Operan, är Sveriges nationalscen för opera och balett/modern dans med ursprung från 1773. Kungliga Operan är belägen i kvarteret Norrström, mellan Gustav Adolfs torg och Kungsträdgården på Norrmalm i centrala Stockholm. Den bytte namn 1997 från Kungliga Teatern.

    (Translated by Google) The Royal Opera is a bit of an anachronism in today's Sweden where the latest trends and superficiality are all too often rewarded. Opera is the opposite. Full of tradition, history and old-fashioned fine culture. Everything packaged in a fantastic architecture! (Original) Kungliga operan är lite av en anakronism i dagens Sverige där de senaste trenderna och ytlighet alltför ofta premieras. Operan är motsatsen. Fullt av tradition, historia och gammaldags finkultur. Allt paketerat i en fantastisk arkitektur!

    5 star experience in center of Stockholm! We got tickets to see a modern ballet performance. The opera is very atmospheric, feels like time stopped 100 years ago. The foyer and other areas of the building are very nice and so is the main hall. Seats are quite comfortable but viewing is not very good from side balconies. Anyway, it was a great experience!

    This place is beautiful inside, the theater have good sound and the seats are comfortable. We saw La Boite A Joujoux Carmen ballet and it was so pretty, the styling, the scenario, the music and outstanding dance play it was completely worth it. In the pause it’s possible to reserve a table and buy things in advance so you don’t have to queue and you can enjoy more time so I really recommend that option, I ordered a pastrami sandwich and it was really good.

    A most amazing concert hall, a lot of history and beauty. The production of Aida was simply outstanding. It was very well attended too.

    Decided to treat myself to front row tickets to the Nutcracker. Great decision! Really enjoyed the view and the performance. Definitely would like to come for an opera in the future. Beautiful theatre!

  • 5Björn K. 2 years ago
    Beautiful setting for the best Opera in Sweden. The fact that the opera house if from another age also adds to its character and the overall atmosphere of the visit. Short suggestion: book drinks for the pause, otherwise there is a good chance you'll spend the pause waiting to buy a drink and only drink it in 5 minutes before the bells.

  • 5Alvin S. 2 years ago
    It was an incredibly unique dining experience with a lot of entertainment. Lots of different types of singing and dancing and the audience was actively made a part of the performance. It was a very interesting experience with nice food as well to go with the performances.

  • 5Laverne Veronica W. 3 years ago
    There are at least 3 good bars situated at the Opera house, with a great view of the canal and Palace. Lots of tourist buses but also well dressed locals. Good age group for us as well, with a lovely little park and the Grand Hotel closeby.

  • 5Ilva D. 3 years ago
    Such a royal/grand looking building. Inside very grand and impressive surrounding. Beautiful brochure with the whole year program/events in Swedish and English available.

  • 5RT N. 5 years ago
    Beautiful venue. As a visitor from the UK I really enjoyed watching a ballet here it was a comfortable enjoyable experience and well worth checking if there is anything you're interested in on your visit to Stockholm.

  • 5Mårten N. 4 years ago
    Very nice opera house. Beautifully located among classical buildings and waterways. The orchestra and the performers are usually of high quality. Worth visiting for both performances as well as enjoying the house in itself.

    Didn’t actually see a performance here but was fully able to walk through a large area of the opera house. Really nice with lots of cool items on display including full costumes and props. There is also a cafe on the roof. Hopefully will be back to see a performance.

  • 4Kevin S. 3 months ago
    This opera house is well maintained. Our evening was well organised and the seating was comfortable. However, it could do with some air-conditioning seeing some people, including myself, did get hot at times.

  • 4Angela L. 4 months ago
    We had front row tickets so we had amazing view of certain things and slightly obstructed view when the stage went up higher than our line of sight. Why only 4 stars? I wish the film part of the show was subtitled but seriously Ekman’s Eskapist was so mad and chaotic and deep and moving that it didn’t matter!

  • 4Jacob G. 3 years ago
    Beautiful old building, with much charm and enough modernization to work well today. Great orchestra, and just about outstanding opera ensemble! It's not cheap, but also not too bad, and it is worth the money. The inside gets rather toasty when the room is sold out though.

  • 4Monisha r. 5 months ago
    This place is also one of the oldest building in Stockholm.This building has been recently remodelled.This is available for public to watch live play. This is an opera theatre where various performance is made.You have to book tickets for entering the opera hall.The plays will occur regularly. The opera hall will be like the ones you can see in the cinemas.Must visit this place if you are fond of interiors.

    (Translated by Google) Nice building and beautiful interiors, to my taste. Have visited a number of times. Latest: opera "Candide" + Different and interesting visual experience. Good philosophy in the end. Beautiful voices: Elin Rombo & Joel Annmo. - The story thread was chaotic, a lot of weirdness with "intercourse" like scenes. I understand that they are trying to attract a new audience but it is starting to resemble Cirque du Soleil (not the Royal Opera). (Original) Fin byggnad samt vackra interiörer, helt i min smak. Har besökt ett antal gånger. Senaste: operan ”Candide” +Annorlunda och intressant visuell upplevelse. Bra filosofin på slutet. Vackra röster: Elin Rombo & Joel Annmo. - Story-tråden var kaotisk, en massa konstigheter med ”samlag” liknande scener. Jag förstå att dem försöker locka in en ny publik men det börjar likna Cirque du Soleil (inte Kungliga Operan).

  • 4Gabriel T. 2 years ago
    (Translated by Google) Wonderful place to enjoy both premises and shows! Glamorous and welcoming to everyone! Had got a full pot if the cafe part had a bigger selection. A little too crowded from time to time but not all dangerous. Opera, ballet. Dance and song for everyone! (Original) Underbar plats för njutning av såväl lokaler som uppställningar! Glamoröst och välkomnande för alla! Hade fått full pott om café delen hade större utbud. Lite trångt också emellanåt men inte alla farligt. Opera, balett. Dans och sång för alla!
