There are guided tours back stage and it's a very informative tour. I didn't watch any opera. But I assume it would've been really cool.

Wonderful opera show Maskeradbalen in this beautiful royal opera house. The options are to take a tour or attend a show, I chose the second one and was not sorry. The price was more than affordable. Recommended

I saw La Bohème during a recent visit to Stockholm. Beautiful hall, the gilding and red velvet and plush seating added to a delightful experience. We had seats in the second balcony (of three), which we purchased earlier that week. There wasn't a bad seat...More

A great ballet, it makes sense to buy tickets beforehand in order to enjoy the theater. An important feature of the hall is that the scene can be seen very clearly from any place.

Norrmalm is Stockholm’s most central and busiest
neighborhood. It’s home to the main shopping street,
Drottninggatan, and to Stockholm icons like the
Sergels Torg glass obelisk, the famous Hay Market with
its Carl Milles sculptures, and the Hötorget
Skyscrapers, a sight on every other Stockholm
postcard. Norrmalm is also home to Sweden’s most
traditional department stores Nordiska Kompaniet and

For ballet I would try to get seats a couple of rows back if you can to be able to "get the whole picture"
