The opera house is an interesting building from the outside, making for some good photography. It's a nice bit of architecture. I was surprised to read that it was designed and built in 1994, it looks more modern from the outside. Best viewed on a sunny day when the light hits the entrance to the building. I went back at...

Lovely tour of the opera house in Gotesburg. We were behind the scenes and learned how they prepared for productions, the vastness of it, the beauty of it, the hard work that goes into it. Very interesting, exciting and educational.

The building cost a lot to build and take your time to admire the wood and glass! The food in the restaurant is really expensive, but a sandwich in the pause is ok priced. Too few toilets, be fast in the intermission if you are a lady at least! Comfortable seats. If you are there with a wheelchair, the noise... More

I have eaten here numerous times on business lunches. Quality is always very high, service fast and attentive. I appreciate the initiative with a meat free day. If you don't fancy anything from Today's I can always recommend the fish soup. (The prawn sandwich is not as good as it could be though)

Was here only once, watched an interesting modern ballet show. The atmosphere inside and outside of the opera building is very nice.

Walking by the sea one evening, we came across the Goteborg Opera house and were amazed by the architecture. We noticed that it is built in the shape of a ship! Next time we must get in for a performance, which we learnt are exhilarating.

I have been to Göteborgs opera many times, and I am still amazed by the quality of the performances. The musicals draw the crowds, the operas are exceptional for music lovers, and the ballet company deserves to get a greater audience. Get a ticket, and enjoy. Tip: the bar upstairs has great views over the city

We went to see Crazy For You, the Gershwin mash-up musical. Although we were told it would have English super-titles, it didn't...so we watched it in Swedish. If it's critical to your evening's pleasure, do double check on the availability of a translation. Not that the Gershwin needs much translation, the story is pretty clear. The production was terrific -... More

Some people might not agree, but I think this building is really nice! On both sides. plus, it is located in a nice place, over the river.

You can enjoy a very good lunch al fresco overlooking the river. Reserve ahead or be sure to arrive before noon to get a good table. On a recent visit, I enjoyed a well-prepared fish soup (light broth), an excellent hake entree and an average pannacotta dessert. A good solid salad bar is included gratis in the meal price.
