Twelfth Night Concert and Ball 2017

A glittering dedication to Bernstein's Broadway.

Experience an unforgettable Twelfth Night, brimming with fantastic music and delicious food and drink. A magical winter evening featuring a tailor-made concert as a tribute to the 100-year anniversary of the composer Leonard Bernstein's birth. Bernstein is most widely known for his musical West Side Story, but is also one of few composers to have successfully straddled both the worlds of Broadway and classical music.

After the concert, the Main Stage will be transformed into a ballroom, where the Göteborg Opera's Viennese Orchestra will strike up with some dance music, and later pass the baton to Stardust Big Swing Band, featuring guest artists. As the dancers sweep past you'll see tail-coats, tuxedos, full-length silk gowns, black sheath dresses and kilts – dress in whatever you think is beautiful!

Choose for yourself whether to top off the evening with something delicious from the Göteborg Opera's specially designed menus before or after the concert. The restaurant, Opera Bar and cafés each have their own menu. Most of the dinner options must be pre-booked and we recommend that you arrange this well in advance.

To make restaurant reservations or make inquiries, please call 031-13 13 00.

In connection with the Twelfth Night Concert and Ball we are also offering dance classes, where you can learn the basics (or brush up on your skills) of the waltz and others.
