We visit this theater a couple of times each year. The building is lovely with great decorations, lots of gold and statues. The most famous plays are staged here and they have the most famous actors. All is in Swedish though so for all you foreigners it's enough to check out the lobby etc if you happen to pass by.

Our most famous Royal theatre, where Ingmar Bergman worked and where there often is a play by Strindberg. All in Swedish though

Thanks to a friend who works here professionally, we were taken on a three hour visit and were able to experience the entire theatre and meet key staff in every department as well as see areas not normally available during organised tours. The sense of history here - both from the points of view of theatre and performance and the history of Sweden and the Royal Court - is tangible. It was in fact the actors of the day who raised the money initially to construct it. Apart from seeing each performance space, highlights were the costume department with its complement of some twenty tailors and designers (including shoemakers) and also the wig making section where every actor, past and present, has a personal dummy head used to customise every wig. The makeup section was fascinating as well with actors being made up for evening perfromances.

The theatre is a sumptuous architectural gem in supreme Jugendstil perfection and it was extraordinary being in the places (including the acting school) where all of Sweden's most famous - Garbo, Bergman, von Sydow, Strindberg included - learned and perfected or applied their skills. Sweden's most famous artists did paintings and murals and these are truly significant, and other highlights were the marble bar and restaurant area upstairs; the Royal apartments with Prince Eugen's murals and the Royal box, and the marble busts of the connected, Royal and otherwise famous. Another area of interest was the small experimental theatre where the avantgarde is explored and tested out. Really, the sense of history here is palpable and one walks in the presence of all who have been.

The Theater has been the home of many famous Swedish actors during the years. This as well as all other famous artists connected to the theater could be seen at times when the theater is open to the public. Still at present time the scandinaavian dramas by Strindberg and Ibsen shouldd be seen at place as at "Dramaten"
