The Story Foyer

The Story Foyer has now become "Miniscen" (Mini Stage). Keep an eye out for future Miniscen performances in our programme.

Performances for our youngest audience. Free admission! Please note - almost all performances are in Swedish only.

The Story Foyer is the name given to The Göteborg Opera concerts for our youngest audience. It is aimed at children of different ages on different occasions. Storytellers, musicians, singers and dancers come from The Göteborg Opera casts.

The Story Foyer is set on the Small Stage. Admission is free, but the number of seats is limited. There are about 40 seats for children and the performances are about 25 minutes long. Parents or other adults are welcome to join their children.


Tickets are released though our online booking here on this webpage on Wednesday at 12.00 noon on the week of the performance, and will be sent to your email adress. 

The tickets are free of charge and only children need a ticket. Due to limited number of seats, maximum 2 tickets per person.

Order your tickets through the “Buy tickets” button above.

Tickets are released at 12 pm on the Wednesday before the performance.
