ALL PERFORMANCES ARE
CANCELLED THROUGH APRIL 26
- but on Operan Play the curtain will not go down
Due to the prevailing situation regarding Covid-19, in Sweden and the world, the Royal Swedish Opera has decided to cancel all public events through April 26. This also affects the premiere and performances of the opera Jolanta which is cancelled and the performaces of the ballet Les Ballets Suédois which are postponed to the autumn of 2020. In the meantime, we will continue to develop our newly launched digital platform Operan Play, so that our audience can continue to enjoy our opera, ballet, dance and music. This online platform offers the opportunity to view entire performances as well as behind-the-scenes material from the Opera House. And the best news of them all – no fees nor login are required.
The Opera's decision to cancel Jolanta and postspone Les Ballets Suédois is based on recommendations from the Public Health Agency of Sweden regarding travel restrictions into and within the country. The decision to cancel all public events through April 26 is based on the recommendations from the Public Health Agency of Sweden on how to reduce the risk of infection in society, as well as the fact that we want to protect the health of our visitors. The decision is effective until further notice and may be reviewed.
