Twelfth Night Concert and Ball

Only the best will do.

Experience an unforgettable Twelfth Night, overflowing with fantastic music, food and drink. This Twelfth Night Concert will be a powerful experience, with famous choral pieces from favourite operas and musicals. The 46 opera singers from the Göteborg Opera Chorus will present a wide range of beloved pieces ranging from the tender Easter Hymn from ”Cavalleria rusticana” to the rustic and grandiose Prisoner’s Chorus from ”Nabucco”. Conductor is 
Tecwyn Evans.

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

Food and drink

Welcome drinks are served in the foyer from 5.45 pm.

Top off the evening with something delicious from our specially designed menus, which you can enjoy both before or after the concert. Our 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.
