Safe and secure on and around the stage

This is how we work to protect our staff from the spread of infection. 

In our daily work, the health and safety of our employees is the most important thing. We have introduced a number of new routines and measures, and are in regular contact with the region's infection control doctors.

Before each rehearsal period, we do a risk analysis of the performance. The studios, workshops and stage departments also make risk assessments, and everything is agreed upon in the management team. Of course, we follow all guidelines, recommendations and rules of conduct.

Postponed productions

This season, two of GöteborgsOperan's productions have been postponed because safety could not be guaranteed for employees while maintaining artistic quality. This applies both to "Nabucco", where a large opera choir plays an important role, and to the regional initiative Winter Choral Tour where about twenty opera singers would tour to smaller stages in the region. Several other productions have been postponed due to the fact that we're not allowed to perform for audiences since 12 March.

Adjusted productions

A couple of shows have undergone major adjustments to increase the safety of our artists. This applies to the planned new premiere of "Tosca", where the children's choir was recorded in advance to give more space on stage for the Göteborg Opera Chorus and "Siegfried", where the number of musicians in the Göteborg Opera Orchestra was adjusted to meet a safe and secure distance in the orchestra pit.
