Welcome to HemmaOperan. Entertainment and solace with performances and short clips from the Göteborg Opera. Operas, dance, musicals and concerts, from the comfort of your own home.
Life is usually better experienced directly. But now – when we’re keeping inside more than usual, and the Göteborg Opera has temporarily closed its stage doors – digital experiences are wonderful a substitute. When you can’t come to us, we’ll come to you.
Opera, dance, musicals and concerts are undoubtedly experiences which can both entertain and comfort – they can get time to go faster, and make waiting more bearable.
On this page we've collected links to many parts of our digital house: the pop-up entertainment of the Bakom kulisserna (Behind the scenes) vlog, audio of panel discussions, teasers, trailers and some och well-chosen favourites from previous seasons. We will update this page with more material as time goes by, so please come back now and then to have a look.
Warning for bluff Facebook Events
We have noticed bluff Facebook events published by third-parties claiming to be ”live streams” of our cancelled performances. If you see an event which isn’t published on our own official Facebook pages (see the links below), we advise against clicking on the links connected to these “events” to see the “live streaming”. Usually "Live stream" is written with extra punctuation marks or a different font, most likely to be harder to track by Facebook.
Selected performances from previous seasons – as well as newly recorded ones. More titles will be added as time goes by, so watch this space!
- Concert: Songs in early summer. Join the Göteborg Opera Chorus in celebrating Swedish summer. Premiere 6 June at 1pm. Available until 19 June.

The ”Bakom kulisserna” vlog, rehearsal film clips, teasers and interviews from previous productions, dancer portraits and even reading for everyone who is interested in everything that happens here at the GöteborgsOperan. Note: some material is only presented in Swedish.
About one week before premieres we hold free panel discussions. At these discussions the artistic team and soloists talk about their work. Often an expert guest is invited to give a special perspective on the production. These discussions take place on the Small Stage a week or two before the premiere. The chair for the opera panels is The Göteborg Opera's dramaturgist, Göran Gademan.
Some talks are held in English, some in Swedish.
