Guided tours

Welcome in behind the scenes!

Why are there TV-screens on the balconies? What happens during a blackout? Is it possible for a singer without a microphone to be heard over a full orchestra? Discover the answers to all this and more on a guided tour through the house, which will take you behind the scenes and through the auditorium.

Blacksmith, set painter, electrician, wardrobe, chef, carpenter, tailor, naprapath, camera operator, milliner, stage manager and wear-and-tear specialist. These are just some of the 90 occupations contained within the Göteborg Opera. Go behind the scenes and meet the people who never appear on stage.

”To be able to give visitors an insight into our work is both fun and exciting”, explains guide and former singer Susanne Albertus. ”Each tour is different, and depends on what the group is interested in and what is going on in the house while they are here. Sometimes I can be as surprised as our visitors!”

Over 400 000 visitors have already been on one of the guided tours. Come along for a one-of-a-kind experience.
