Accessibility

The Train Station

At the train station, there are a few helpful steps for those with limited mobility. There are also handrails and a ramp for wheelchairs. We make sure the station is swept before each performance and it’s also overseen by staff.

The Opera House

The Opera House is equipped with a text machine that display Swedish subtitles.

On parquet level (stalls) there are assigned seats for wheelchairs and their escorts. If you have a special seating request, we do our best to accommodate. Please email biljetter@operapaskaret.se or call +46 580-711 00.

All level differences are marked with barricade tape and lights.

All entrances and emergency exits are clearly marked with exit signs, and have ramps in case of an emergency evacuation.

There are a number of fire extinguishers in the building.

The staircase at the back of the salon has handrails and is marked with lights.

There are two entrances to this building, one at the front and one at the back of the building. The thresholds are smooth to roll over for any wheelchair.

The Opera Café and it’s outdoor seating

There is one accessible toilet in the Opera Café. The threshold to the entrance is within what is reasonable to be able to roll in a wheelchair. There are two ramps to the emergency exits at the Opera Café, one of which is permanent. Emergency exits are clearly marked with exit signs.

The Small Stage

All entrances have easy access, with no obstacles in the form of high edges or thresholds. The rows are made up of 5 chairs stuck together, and can therefore not be changed to wheelchair seats. If you have any questions, please email the Box Office on: biljetter@operapaskaret.se or call +46 580-71100

The emergency exit has a portable ramp without handrails. All emergency exits are clearly marked with exit signs.

Outdoor Public Places

The area at Opera på Skäret has underlying gravel and grass. Any holes and uneven surfaces are reported to the safety staff, and we make sure that all the foot paths are maintained and every year we even out all the surfaces in the gravel.
