Among many attractions in Stockholm, the Royal Dramatic Theatre deserves close attention. It was founded by King Gustav III and his protégé Erm Armfelt in 1788. In the beginning, plays were only performed in Swedish, and later in English, French, and other languages. Comedies, operettas and plays were often performed at royal weddings. Until the beginning of the 20th century, the theater was significantly dilapidated, so the final play on the stage was held on 14 June, 1907. Reconstruction began in the following year, 1908.
Famous sculptors and architects participated in the reconstruction, and nowadays, the whole building, both inside and outside, is considered a masterpiece of architecture. The main hall’s capacity is 770 people, it has the shades of blue, white and yellow colour. Trained and licensed tour guides present the location to tourists.
Ticket prices are not fixed and may vary.
The Royal Theatre is really royal and worth the visit!
