No bag restriction at the Gothenburg Opera

The Gothenburg Opera is not impacted by the Police’s requirement for a complete ban on bags at arena-sized events. However, we ask as always that you do not bring bulky items or larger bags to the house since they make evacuation more difficult in case of emergency. Also, our wardrobes have limited space, so we cannot guarantee that we will have enough room for larger items.
