Getting here

Opera på Skäret is located by the lake Ljusnaren just outside Kopparberg, a beautiful spot right in the middle of Sweden!

The “Opera Train”

Opera på Skäret is the only opera house in the world with it’s own train station! For a few years now, we’ve had vintage trains running from Stockholm Central Station directly to Opera på Skäret. This train journey is a completely unique culture/ nature experience. To travel in a lovely vintage train through the Swedish countryside in the summertime, while having a delicious 3 -course dinner and then to enjoy opera art on the highest level, with the remarkable acoustics of the opera house being the icing on the cake!

The Train Package includes:

  • Return train journey to Opera på Skäret
  • lunch on the train
  • 3- course dinner on the train
  • Opera ticket

The outbound journey starts before midday and you will return to Stockholm before midnight.

You can book the Opera train by calling our Box Office: tel +46 580-71100
or via email: biljetter@operapaskaret.se. No booking fee will be added.

NB! The ticket for the opera performance is included in the train package. Don’t book your ticket online first!
