Take the opportunity to learn more about the performance and get a more in-depth insight into the story and the background.
The introductions are popular, so come early. They take place either on the Small Stage or in the Opera Bar an hour before opera and dance performances (not, however on premiere or guest performance evenings). It does not cost anything extra, your ticket is valid for entry. The introduction takes about 30 minutes.
Panel discussions and seminars.
About one week before premieres we hold free panel discussions. At these discussions the artistic team and soloists or dancers talk about their work. Often an expert guest is invited to give a special perspective on the production. It could be a language professor, an architect, an art historian or perhaps a singer or dancer who have played the role earlier in their career.
These discussions take place on the Small Stage a week or two before the premiere.
The chair for the opera panels is The Göteborg Opera's dramaturgist, Göran Gademan, and for the dance panel discussions Adolphe Binder, the Artistic Director for GöteborgsOperans Danskompani.
Free admission. Some talks are held in English.
