ROYAL SWEDISH OPERA CHORUS

The Royal Swedish Opera Chorus was created in 1773 for the first Swedish opera. It is still the largest and one of the few full-time choruses employed in Sweden. At the transfer to the newly built Gustavian Opera House at Gustav Adolf’s Torg in 1782, it is said to have counted eighty members, but the number dwindled in the nineteenth century. During the co-existence with the Royal Dramatic Theatre until 1887 chorus members also frequently took minor spoken parts in drama and musical plays. From 1900 to the present the chorus has grown from around forty to sixty members. Every season the Royal Opera Chorus participates in about fifteen different opera productions, in concerts and in recordings such as Ingvar Lidholm’s A Dream Play, Tchaikovsky’s Mazeppa, and Berg’s Wozzeck.
