YOUNG AT THE OPERA | DISCOVER THE OPERA HOUSE

EPISODE 4. Welcome to the Opera House! Art and magic is created here all year round. Did you know that the Opera House is twelve storeys high and 27,000 square meters in size? That’s the equivalent of 64 basketball courts! In this episode of The Magical House, we pay the auditorium a visit and have a peak behind the main stage – there’s so much to discover behind the scenes during a performance! Together with our discoverer Sara, we meet some of the key people who work here. Just about everyone on and behind the stage is equally important to make the Opera a truly magical house.

The Young at the Opera section has created the web series The Magical House for grades 1-3. Here there are over 1000 rooms and 120 professions - which we discover together!
A big thank you to the Signatur Foundation Sweden for making this episode possible.

The MAGICAL House part 3

Every year, more than 1,000 costumes are made for the Opera's various performances. The costumes can make characters come to life and transform opera singers into - robots, dancers into snowflakes (or even polar bears!) and magically transform an entire choir into bears. The possibilities are endless. All costumes worn by the singers and dancers on stage are created and sown here at The Royal Swedish Opera. But how is a costume made from scratch? In this episode, the host Sara Lewerth meets Annette who works as a cutter at the costume studio and finds out more about how a costume is made.
