Royal Swedish Opera
The Royal Opera House stands slapbang in the middle of the city, and is also a key part of its cultural and culinary life. It is home to several outstanding restaurants, but this is still the country’s main venue for opera and ballet. There’s been an opera house on this site for centuries but the current building opened in 1898. The interior is stunning, with a red-and-gold auditorium and the famous gold foyer which you can visit during the intermission. The program usually includes many of the best-known operas, plus some lesser-known works.
