The Göteborg Opera’s Skapa Days (Create Days) are a great opportunity for those with an enquiring mind to find out more about singing, music, dance, visual art, theatre and other art forms.

Skapa Days are held three times per season. They include something for all ages and always place emphasis on participation and experience.

Each round of Skapa Days has its own specific performances. Performances during the 2022/2023 season include Bleka höga höst with the Göteborg Opera Community Choir (part of the autumn Skapa Days) and Open House (part of the spring Skapa Days).

Skapa Days Winter, 12–19 February 2023

Youth biennale 3.0

18 & 19 February 6.00pm

Kulturskolan Göteborg visits the Göteborg Opera with a performance that has two acts – made by young people for young people. A bubbly musical with an elusive murder mystery – as well as a space adventure to save humanity.

Why did the father disappear?
How could the experiment go so wrong?
Can humans save the earth, or is it too late?
And who is the murderer at the hotel?

Come and watch when the Youth Biennale visits the Small Stage at the Göteborg Opera!

Artistic director: Maria Fräki
Musical director: Daniel Stighäll

A day by and for youth
Try musicals and contemporary dance

12 February 11.00am – 3.00pm, Small Stage

The Göteborg Opera’s Young Ambassadors are a group of young people that are passionate about the performing arts. They’re arranging day for all young people (13–25 years old) where you can discover, be inspired by and sample different activities together with professional musical artists and dancers. Everyone is welcome, no previous experience necessary!

The day will begin with some drama exercises followed by going through the components of a musical: singing, dancing and theatre. After lunch we'll create and practice a short musical scene and will wind up the day with a meet-and-greet together with some of the musical artists from Cabaret.

This workshop will be led by Hanna Brehmer and David Oest together with the Göteborg Opera’s Young Ambassadors.
