The Göteborg Opera Orchestra on tour with Mozart, Beethoven and Weber.
Love, intrigue and utter confusion. A revival of Mozart’s brilliantly convoluted and utterly human comedy directed by Stephen Langridge. Sung in Italian with Swedish and English surtitles.

Contagious dance. ”Naharin’s virus” by Ohad Naharin & ”Love” by Roni Haver/Guy Weizman.
“Opera at its very best!” Dagens Nyheter. Carmen personifies independence and passion: she is wild, fearless, voracious. When she throws her rose to Don José, thus commences a relationship that will end in tragedy.
We invite you to prepare for Die Walküre – this year’s installment in the Ring Cycle Der Ring des Nibelungen – by watching our screening of Das Rhinegold, recorded in 2018.

Experience an unforgettable Twelfth Night, overflowing with fantastic music, food and drink. This Twelfth Night Concert will be a powerful experience, with famous choral pieces from favourite operas and musicals.
Creation by Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui. Stoic is his third collaboration with GöteborgsOperans Danskompani, following the airy Noetic (2014) and the down-to-earth Icon (2016).
Once, we were all going to live forever. Puccini’s La bohème is easy to love. In four short acts, he captures the recklessness of youth, where it blossoms, wilts and dies. Hope and despair stand side-by-side.
Creations by Wang Ramirez and Yoann Bourgeois. Magnetic dance at the highest level.
Human blindness and obsession. Opera by Nadia Boulanger & Raoul Pugno. Performed as a concert. This will be the second ever performance of Boulanger’s only opera. A tragic tale suffused with symbolism and decadence.
Who takes whom in Mozart’s comedy? Fast-paced comedy of errors on tour in Västra Götaland. Humans succumb to their weaknesses – as we all do – but Mozart stands on the side of unfaltering love. The music is composed with beauty, devotion and endless emotional depth.
A new, international collaboration between three of the top European dance companies for contemporary dance: GöteborgsOperans Danskompani, Holland’s Scapino Ballet and Tanz Maiz of Germany.
When you’re staring into the abyss. While on vacation in Venice, the famous writer von Aschenbach becomes fascinated with a young boy. Fascination turns to obsession. Bit by bit, his self-image falls to pieces while a cholera plague approaches the city. Britten’s final opera, based on Thomas Mann’s novella.
When prayers cannot help. Tosca is a passionate emotional triangle with the feel of a thriller, depicting a single day over three acts. It connects with audiences on a deeply emotional level, presenting an incredibly strong heroine and a truly cruel villain in the lead roles, performed with heart-rendingly beautiful Puccini melodies.
