Access|ibility & assistance
Our aim is for the Göteborg Opera to be accessible to all. Please let us know when you make your booking if you have any special needs.
Once you have arrived you can talk to our ushers in the foyer. Daniel Olmarker is one of the ushers and is often there to assist you. He is proud of the ushers’ knowledge: “We know what mobility aids are available and how they function. All you need to do is ask,” he says. “Also, we are all trained in CPR. At each performance we always have at least one person present who knows how to use the defibrillator.”
Specific seats for wheelchair users can be found in the stalls, row 22. Please book these tickets via our box office by calling tel +46 31 13 13 00.
Wheelchair users and accompanying persons pay 50% of the normal ticket price.
Escorts for wheelchair users
Let us know when booking tickets if you need an escort. We give a 50% discount both to the person with the disability and their escort. Please book these tickets via our box office by calling tel +46 31 13 13 00.
Infra-red hearing aids are available to borrow from our theatre attendants. If the production is not performed in Swedish, Swedish subtitles are provided.
The opera performances are generally subtitled in Swedish on electronic screens.
Some performances also feature interpretation for the blind. Get in touch with us and we’ll tell you about current events and productions.
The information sign by the OperaShop gives you an overview of the foyer and shows where the restaurant, café, cloakroom and toilets are located.
In the foyer there is a defibrillator and staff trained to use it if need be.
