Opera på Skäret
Since 2004, over 90,000 visitors have enjoyed the magic of the unique opera house at lake Ljusnaren. In the summer of 2018 Opera is celebrating the 15 years, commemorating by producing its biggest set up to date - Giuseppe Verdi's magnificent work Don Carlo.
Summer 2018 includes the L'elisir d'amore by Gaetano Donizetti 14 July - 24 August and Don Carlo by Guiseppe Verdi 28 July - 26 August.
Opera at Skäret is the only opera house in the world with its own train station. For many years, it has been a tradition to travel with a veteran train from Stockholm to the performances during the summer including lunch and three-course dinner. Departure takes place in the morning with a return home before midnight on the same day. The train goes to the Gala Premier on 28/7 and all Saturdays and Sundays in August - 4, 5, 11, 12, 18, 19, 25 and 26 August.
