The Royal Swedish Opera counts 2017 as one of its most successful years to count, reaching larger audiences and first-time visitors. New productions, such as the opera Dracula and the ballet Julia & Romeo by Mats Ek have filled the house and attracted younger audiences. Myriads of worlds, aimed at the youngest visitors – from 3 to 18 months – is a part of the Opera’s long-standing efforts for children and youth. A national innovation contest resulted in an app through which visitors, among other things, can enjoy performances via assisted-listening and sign-language interpretation.
The Royal Swedish Opera’s position at the forefront of digital technology is also demonstrated by the dance work Half Life in Virtual Reality. Moreover, as a national stage, the Opera has made its extensive history accessible through an archive in which every single production since 1773 is searchable in a digital database, launched in 2017. All of this – and much more.
