Dear audience, how we wish you could fill our auditorium right now! Instead, the Opera House is filled with longing as we approach the end of summer this year. We long for your presence, and for that magical atmosphere created by the performers and audience together.
The operatic concert An die Freude is our gift to you. A gift filled with singing, music and longing, performed by eleven of our opera soloists and the Göteborg Opera Chorus under the baton of Henrik Schaefer. The concert finishes on a note of joy and hope with Beethoven’s An die Freude (Ode to Joy).
