The Göteborg Opera talk show Anticipation and longing will be the themes discussed in the first episode of Spotlight, the Göteborg Opera’s talk show. These themes have figured strongly in our lives during the pandemic. To help us manage the frustration, we’ve invited special guests Klara Zimmergren and Kent Misti, who are both well-known for finding the funny side of problems. You can also enjoy carols and tasters from the musical Cabaret and Wagner’s opera Siegfried. Presenter: opera soloist Åke Zetterström.
Because the Göteborg Opera is closed to the public due to the current pandemic, you can watch Richard Wagner’s opera Siegfried online. We’ll broadcast the opera one act at a time over the weekend of 18–20 December. You can choose whether to watch one act a day or the whole opera in one go on Sunday.
