Dear Audience

After last year’s canceled performances, as a result of the Corona pandemic, we are now planning for a new opera summer at Skäret. Our intention is to be able to give twelve performances of Puccini’s masterpiece Turandot.

Times remain uncertain. No one knows for sure what the conditions for playing opera will look like this summer. The pandemic situation, the vaccination of the population and the restrictions that are imposed on us by the authorities are crucial. But the latest information from the Swedish Public Health Agency makes feel us very hopeful. We follow developments closely and plan for the measures required to ensure the safety of our visitors.

Ticket sales for this year’s performances start no earlier than the beginning of April. If you want to be sure not to miss news from us, you can sign up for our newsletter here. We will continuously keep you informed about our work for this summer here on the website as well as on our Facebook page.

After very difficult year, for all of us, we want nothing more than to let our unique opera house burst with world-class artistry again. And we know that many of our returning guests long for new, joyful experiences.

I sincerely hope to see you at Skäret this summer!
