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.

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.
