In my understanding The Royal Opera is Sweden's national stage for opera and ballet. Unfortunately we only had the chance to pass by it, just enough to admire its magnificent exterior built in the Renaissance style. If you have the time tough, check out at least the opera house`s restaurant, a quite expensive place, but offering an amazing view over the bay there Lake Malaren meets the Baltic sea.

We took the tour behind the scenes today and loved it.
Roy our tour guide was super friendly and funny. He had a great way to talk about things and his English is easy to understand for everyone.
The tour was very interesting and a great opportunity to learn a lot about the Operas history.

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

We visited the Opera House after hours with our Tour Company (Tauck) and were given an in-depth tour of the Opera House...even going backstage. We sat up in the theater and could get an idea of what a performance must look like. Beautifully appointed..very "royal". Our tour finished with a magnificent performance by a young lady. Fabulous! After the performance, we had a fabulous meal with great service.
