    Beautiful as always, a tip for those who want to book tickets is to know that the opera House is quite small so all seats are pretty good

    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!

  • 5Lina Perez S. 1 year ago
    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.

    The building is beautiful. I had champagne with friends during intermission and it couldn't have been more enjoyable. Be aware that if you are an English only speaker subtitles are only provided in Swedish.

    Beautiful classic building. Amazing sound quality even from the top floor

  • 5Joey M. 5 months ago
    If you want to have an opera experience on budget, you can buy listening seat tickets.. this gives a partial view of the stage. During the intermission can walk ard to other floors and take photos. Take note that the whole program will be swedish including the subtitles. The sound in the hall is amazing and the architecture was beautiful. Worth going! Can check out their website, there are cheaper tickets for those aged 26 and below! Book early and be there early for your program.

  • 5Alexander E. 3 months ago
    Had the pleasure to watch Sweeny Todd at the opera. It was a fantastic experience with a great orchestra and actors. Only thing I would have liked more is some legroom. It was tight, but not uncomfortable. And even though we were high up sound and sight carried well.

    Wonderful building. Very friendly team. Great production. Fantastic performance 🎶however ZERO stars for having no English subtitles…that is not what one would expect in a European Capital.

  • 5Nikolas K. 4 years ago
    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!

  • 5Björn K. 3 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. 3 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. 4 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. 6 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. 5 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.

    (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!

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.

    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.

    Went to see La Bohème. It had Swedish subtitles. My Italian and Swedish is pretty rusty, and the fact that they changed it to be in Stockholm instead of Paris, and renamed the characters meant it made the play a little hard to follow. But it was still good! Lovely building too.

  • 4Angus W. 8 months ago
    A beautiful, old-style opera hall. Ornate and grandiose, it really adds to the occasion. Regrettably the ballet I attended was cut short by an unfortunate injury to the lead dancer after about 20 minutes - I hope she makes a full recovery.

  • 4Louis C. 9 months ago
    4/5 as I haven’t seen a performance! Wow! Beautiful and magnificent are the words I’m choosing! Had a brief tour and was impressed!👌🏾🇸🇪

  • 4Viktor E. 8 months ago
    Watching a ballet here was amazing. It was really interesting and with fantastic accompanying music. When some in the audience was disturbing the host calmly walked in and told them. Problem being tat when he was away they started again. Anyway! Recommend the experience!

  • 4Mitch K. 3 years ago
    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.

  • 4Patrick H. 8 months ago
    What a beautiful building! Lived here for so many years so was really time for a visit. If you are here for a show, be sure to preorder drinks and snacks for the intermission break.

    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.

  • 4Sarvash M. 3 years ago
    Check the opera language before going, they only translate it to Swedish. You can enjoy a Swedish Opera too, you'll understand the story

  • 4Angela L. 1 year 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!

    (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. 3 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!

    The New Year's Eve concert, a tradition at the Royal Swedish Opera, is not worth what you pay for the ticket!! There is too much talking and interviewing the management, the C.E.O and such, on stage, which takes away from the music and performances that we wanted to see and experience on New Year's Eve. The concert was also very short which was disappointing. And not so many songs with the experienced and talented singers of the Swedish Royal Opera, only around half or less of the whole concert, which was also performed by opera students. The tickets are too expensive and don't reflect the quality of the show.
