A group of friends visited the opera a sunny day, and we were all in a good mood. The view outside was fantastic, and a walk is only to be recommended. The performance was The Magic Flute ("Trollflöjten"), and since we had seen it in many versions before it was exciting to see how they would present it this time.... More

The building is from 1994 and not very interesting in its post-modernity. Good sound and good view from all seats (as far as I could tell). We saw the Zauberflöte/Magic Flute and were not very impressed - singing and music was OK - not very good acting - bad scenography.

Gothenburg opera is a modern building, which is located in the heart of the harbor. It should be a very busy spot in summer.

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
