Guided tours

Who steers the 1 100 spotlights? What is hidden in the secret corridors? How does a stage manager work? And why is there a sudden blackout on the Main stage?

You will get the answers if you go on a guided tour. Rolf Nilsson, guide at the Göteborg Opera, knows the opera house like the back of his hand. “It’s fun to tell people about what happens behind the scenes,” he says.

Our guided tours take about an hour. More than 400 000 people have already done the guided tour. We promise you an extraordinary experience.
