A Modern Venue for the Performing Arts

Our desire for a modern venue for the performing arts has been supported by a government decision to, not only renovate, but also re-build the Royal Opera House in Stockholm. The intention is to incorporate a new, modern stage in the existing building at Gustav Adolf's Square. The government has proposed a budgeted amount of SEK 2 billion for the planned re-building.

The Opera Initiative welcomes the generous efforts that the government wants to do for the Opera and look very much forward to the proposal from Statens fastighetsverk (The National Property Board of Sweden)
