OperaVännerna, The Friends of the Royal Swedish Opera in Stockholm, was founded in 1980 as an independent association of audience members. Its aim is to “increase members´ benefit from their interest in opera and to create new opera enthusiasts”.
Artist meetings, a monthly magazine (published eight times a year) and visits to other opera houses inside and outside Sweden are now our major activities.

On the day of an opera performance members receive a 50% discount on any remaining ticket – particularly valuable as the Opera recently abolished other discounts.

Our monthly magazine contains articles about current productions and informs about our activities: meetings with artists and events focused on specific works or singers, group visits to performances etc.

We support artists and others through scholarships, and we attract new friends to opera.
