Far North

A concert marathon with the Göteborg Opera Orchestra.

An excerpt from Finlandia by Jean Sibelius, performed by the Göteborg Opera Orchestra at the Gothenburg Cultural Festival 2018.

In May 2019 the Göteborg Opera Orchestra will take an inspiring programme on tour to Japan. Over the course of a week, our eminent musicians will perform six concerts featuring works by prominent Scandinavian and Russian composers. It would be a pity for the home audience to miss out.

Before the orchestra heads East, they will take to the Main Stage to perform two different concert programmes over two evenings. Make room for romance, melancholy, beauty and a longing for nature!
