The Kungliga Operan (The Royal Swedish Opera, lit. "The Royal Opera") is Sweden's national stage for ballet and opera. The current opera was built by 1898, after a previous one was demolished. Famous for its grand front facade, the opera comes off as a museum, architectural delight and showhouse all rolled into one. The food is good. The guides are very friendly and well informed. All in all, a good evening out. Check the schedule before you come.

  • The opera House is simply stunning. 250 years of history have given us an imposing exterior with beautiful arches whilst the interior includes a gold foyer with marble staircase. The Golden Hall on the first floor is breath taking. The house itself is 3 tiered and holds about 1200. We saw an excellent production of Madama Butterfly and enjoyed food during the 30 minute interval.

  • Went for sleeping beauty, a classic. The director add some modern twists to the performance but the show was a bit of stretch for its length. The second part was redundant and long with a lot of added characters from other fairy tales. Needs improvement. The theater itself is pretty small.

  • The Royal Opera in Stockholm 250 year-old opera house with admiring interior and it Situated right across the bridge towards old town. The orchestra and the performers are usually of high quality. Worth visiting for both performances as well as enjoying the house in itself. The restaurant was a bit pricey but the food was not that great.

  • Classical old-style opera house. Posh and lavish decorations with marble and gold and of course crystal chandeliers. The theatre is old but comfortable enough. The playlist is very traditional and the standard is high. The operas are sung in their original language and subtitled into Swedish through a display above the stage.

  • I am not really a fan of opera or ballet but I went for the experience. I really liked it, the seats I was in were fine for watching the ballet and not expensive. On the other hand, I don't know enough about ballet to judge that.
