    Goteborg's Opera House

    Goteborg's Opera House was inaugurated in 1994. It was built after plans of the architect Jan Izikowitz and is nowadays one of the most modern buildings in the city. The classical style auditorium has a capacity of more than 1300 seats.

    Directions:
    Goteborg's Opera House can be found in the Lilla Bommen area, which is the harbour for sightseeing boats in the centre of Goteborg. The nearest tram stop is "Lilla Bommen".

    Nice Building if Your Allowed to See it!

    Slusks f��rbjuden!

    The Goteborg Opera House has an enviable location on the city waterfront. The building itself looks fairly impressive although on the evening I tried to look around it was clear that 'slusks' (shabby fellows) were not welcome. A chap in a suit asked whether I had a ticket for the performance and diplomatically suggested I come back the following day when there wasn't a performance underway. Clearly allemanstätten doesn't extend to opera houses!

    The Opera was inaugurated in 1994 and thay have put on a lot of beautiful plays since then, both operas and musicals. The building itself is well worth a closer look since it is arcitectured like a ship, just besides the water.

    Göteborg has the most modern opera building in Sweden and is very proud of it. I have only been to one performance but has to say the acoustics were indeed special. The architecture certainly is too with edges making it look like a ship on the river next to it. Summertime, their restaurant is a great place to soak up the river atmosphere.

    Opera house

    GoteborgsOperan is beautifully located in the southern shore of the river Gotaavl, close to central Goteborg. It was opened in 1994 and it's the world's most modern opera house, with two stages, a restaurant, cafés and bars.
    The broad repertoire invites you to opera, ballet and musicals.
    Guided tours are arranged all year round.

    opera hse

    On 16 Aug 2004, my friend Jog and I decided to drive to Gbg from Lysekil, and we walked along the Goteborg Opera House. They were showing Miss Saigon at that time, but we did not see the show.

    The opera house is situated at Packhuskajen quay right by the water at Lilla Bommen in central Gothenburg.

    The Opera House

    This is the opera house, situated right by the water at Lilla Bommen in central Gothenburg. I haven't been there myself, but it's supposed to be really good if you are interested in this sort of entertainment.

    And if opera is not your thing the house itself might be worth a look since it has some wonderful architecture and in a great area for strolling around.

    Goteburg Opera House

    In the Lilla Bomen area at the harbourfront, this is Goteburgs Opera House which is the most modern in the world, opened just 10 years ago! Its a really stunning building in a lovely setting overlooking the water.

    stone

    Don't let your imagination run wild.

    This huge pice of art can be found just outside the Opera House, just next to the sculpture that looks like a Scorpion's tail.

    This newly built Opera house somewhat clashes with the architecture of the city. Don't be afraid to go inside and check out the programs.
