Family show. A Christmas mystery for the whole family.

Premiere 16 December 2014

6 performances up to and including 21 December.

Welcome to The Göteborg Opera's new Christmas show!

It’s finally time for Gothenburg to host the North Pole’s annual kick-off! The Göteborg Opera has the great honour of arranging this special event, but... well... let's just say that things don’t always turn out as planned. The party has barely begun, and we end up in the middle of a mystery! The mystery will be solved by a musical adventure through classic Christmas songs, opera arias, and the occasional ballad from the 1980's.

This year the talented Duratrion will help us celebrate Christmas at The Göteborg Opera. Joining them are The Göteborg Opera Chorus, Children's Chorus, Orchestra and soloists. We promise you a magical Yuletide spirit, musical treats for the whole family, and last but not least, lots of fun and laughter.
