Twelfth Night Concert and Ball
Only the best will do.
Part of Gothenburg's 400th anniversary celebrations.
Experience an unforgettable Twelfth Night overflowing with fantastic music and delicious food and drink. This bespoke winter concert pays magnificent tribute to Gothenburg’s 400th anniversary. The humorous vocal trio Duratrion – comprised of musical artists Tobias Ahlsell, David Lundqvist and Anders Wängdahl – guide us through the Gothenburg festivities. The trio will be joined by soprano Kerstin Avemo and musical artists Karin Mårtensson Ghods, Åsa Sjöblom and Micaela Sjöstedt.
After the concert, the Main Stage will be transformed into a ballroom where The Göteborg Opera's Viennese Orchestra will strike up dance music, before surrendering the stage to the Stardust Big Swing Band with guest artists. The dance floor will be awash with everything from tailcoats, dinner jackets and taffeta gowns, to cocktail dresses and kilts – wear your favourite style!
If you want, you can get a bite to eat before or after the concert. The restaurant, Opera Bar and cafés offer a variety of menus. Most of the dinner options must be pre-booked, and we recommend booking well in advance.
Prior to the Twelfth Night Concert and Ball, we also offer dance lessons where you can learn the basics of the foxtrot and waltz (or improve your skills if you already know the basics).
