Operan Göteborg

Gothenburg Opera House

History
The Opera house stood ready year 1994 and the architect is Jan Izikovitz. For a very long period of time discussion about that Stora Teatern and Stadsteatern were to thight and out of date. The talk about this started already at the 50´s and many people didn´t think that it should take so long time before Gothenburg got it´s new arena.


Göteborgs OperanWhat stands outside the Opera House?

Outside at the side against Göta Älv stands an 26 feet high sculpture in granite.
It is the norwegian artist Bård Breivik who have made this art.

What can be found more at this place.
In the area around the Opera House you also have the big ship Barken Viking, at summer time you also can take a trip with Börjesson´s boats out to the small Iland Vinga, Marstrand or Älvsborgs fort. The so called "Lipstick"/Läppstiftet is also just a fiew minutes away, in the top of the building you have a watchtower were you a nice day can see the whole way out to the Island Vinga.

Fun tip:


Orchestra pit
