Book your Drottningholm Opera tickets for a concert at 2016 Drottningholm theatre. The old theatre in Stockholm celebrate the 250th anniversary and the grand anniversary production is The Rococo Machine, which will receive its world premiere on 7 June. The newly written opera, by composer Jan Sandström to Tuvalisa Rangström’s libretto, is a tribute to this unique theatre.

Drottningholms Slottsteater was built in 1766. The theatre is constructed of simple materials and the auditorium is playfully decorated using paint, stucco, and papier mâché. The wooden stage machinery is operated by hand. It includes wind, thunder and cloud machines, as well as traps and moving waves. About 30 stage sets have been preserved, all decorated with themes from 18th century repertoire.
The first golden age of the theatre was initiated by King Gustaf III in 1777.
