Opera in the
Castle Courtyard

The Large Castle Courtyard has fantastic acoustics and the summer opera at Läckö Castle is both well known and well liked far beyond the borders of Västra Götaland County – indeed beyond Sweden. In fair weather or foul, the public make the pilgrimage to the fairytale castle on Kållandsö Island, to delight in everything from Mozart to Benjamin Britten.

Opera
since 1997

It began with a person standing alone in the empty castle courtyard, and couldn’t resist trying out the acoustics against the high, whitewashed walls. Now over 50 singers, musicians, artists and stage technicians occupy the courtyard every summer and convert it into a venue for musical drama.

The activities have become an integral part of the Läckö Castle Foundation’s duty to their public; to convey cultural history and high quality cultural experiences in a approachable and enriching format.
