Festival with world-class dance and music.

Our first ever dance festival was held in spring 2019. It was a resounding success with sell-out performances, exhilarating mingling and happy guests. Now it’s happening again! The second edition will be at least as packed as the last one with extraordinary dance and experiences. The full festival programme will be released at the start of 2022.

Marvel at GöteborgsOperans Danskompani in Hurricane by Yoann Bourgeois. Experience a world premiere in collaboration with Nederlands Dans Theater. Listen to conversations with choreographers and dancers, eat, mingle and experience as all the stages in the house are filled with dance.

Of lost and wild roses

Dance work by Lea Ved

World premiere in collaboration with Nederlands Dans Theater

The Göteborg Opera’s collaborations with other international dance companies, called 3D, continues. In spring 2022, we present Of lost and wild roses, a new work by choreographer Lea Ved from Nederlands Dans Theater (NDT) for three dancers in GöteborgsOperans Danskompani. This first collaboration between the two prestigious dance companies is a platform for choreographic exchange that shines the spotlight on new female choreographers. In parallel with this, Göteborg Opera dancer Emilie Leriche will create a new work for dancers in the NDT2 dance company.

Already in 2018, Lea Ved created a new work for dancers from the Göteborg Opera under the first ever 3D initiative, in a partnership between GöteborgsOperans Danskompani, the Royal Swedish Ballet, where Lea was then working, and Skånes Dansteater.
