“We aim to maintain the high, international quality we have in our current productions, while also reaching out to new audiences.”

"We are investigating the standard repertoire in a new, powerful way, while also introducing less well-known works from the whole 400-year repertoire of musical theatre and opera," says Stephen Langridge, Artistic Director for Opera/Drama

“We aim to be a hub of creative activity, providing a platform for the development of new work. A place where experimentation can lead to new commissions."

Classic works mix with new ones, and popular works with others that are seldom produced. Different art forms enrich one another in creative encounters of the highest quality. Our stage artists maintain a high international level of performance, and indeed we often act as a springboard for the great artists of tomorrow.

"The Göteborg Opera will offer works spanning the period from the very beginnings of opera up to the present day including everything from baroque and grand opera to musicals. The name we give it is of less importance. Puccini's La Bohème is perhaps closer in style to Les Miserables than Monteverdi's Orfeo, the first operatic masterpiece, but we are focussed on quality and dynamic performance rather than narrow definitions of genre.”
