A famous history and vibrant contemporary musical scene combine in the Royal Swedish Opera, creating a spellbinding experience for visitors.
Culture fit for a King
The Royal Swedish Opera is both historically and physically linked with Sweden’s royalty. The structure itself is a remarkable spectacle and splendid example of late nineteenth century Neo-Classicism and connected to The Swedish Royal Palace by the Norrbro Bridge.
While the current building was opened in 1898 the history of this opera stretches even further back, to 1773. It was in this year that the visionary, and culture loving, King Gustav III dismissed the French opera troupe that performed in the city and established a local organisation.
Enjoying a night at the opera
Since it was established all those years ago the Royal Swedish Opera has been responsible for some of the finest shows seen on European stages. As a result it has come to enjoy an exceptional reputation on the world stage. Visitors enjoying a stay with centrally-located hotel rooms at the Radisson Blu Waterfront Hotel, Stockholm can discover how this reputation is justified when they visit the fantastic opera house.
