Presenting 2020–2021 season favourites

This season’s repertoire includes many familiar favourites. Here at the Opera House, we see this season as an endless array of classics, but that’s just our humble opinion. What matters is what our audience thinks. You’ll find our greatest admirers and most relentless critics in the auditorium, so we went there to chat about the productions they hold close to their heart. The stage is yours, our genuine experts. Let’s hear what you have to say.

The Merry Widow

I can’t wait to watch an operetta that makes me laugh from the bottom of my heart and smile all the way home, thinking of funny plot twists

A super approachable opera that reminds me of the Downton Abbey television series.

The best thing is that Pippi can dance differently and doesn’t follow the rules.

The curtain comes down, and the stage performance ends. But its influence lives on, manifesting as warm bodily sensations, vivid dreamlike mental images, and as deeply imprinted pleasant memories
