Tidningen Birgit

Tidningen Birgit is our audience magazine. It is named after our godmother the Swedsih opera star Birgit Nilsson. It is has 3 editions per year, is free, and you can pick it up in our foyer.

Tidningen Birgit describes life behind the scenes, with features like: What does a stage manager do? How do we get people to fly on stage? And how are we able to go on tour with 4 tonnes of clay? You can also read interviews with our artists, take a peek into our costume-, props- and make-up departments and meet the people who work behind the scenes so that everything runs smoothly onstage, night after night.
