The Royal Opera House is the Swedish State Opera. The building also includes the Royal Ballet and the Royal Court Chapel. Until 1788 it also offered performances of plays, and the building was called the Royal Theatre. In 1788, the Royal Dramatic Theatre was finally established and soon a strict separation between theatre and opera followed. As a result, the Royal Theatre was renamed Royal Swedish Opera.

Waagner Biro Stage Systems has been awarded to exchange the existing control system to the new C⋅A⋅T V5 control system and an upgrade of upper stage machinery incl. implementation of existing point hoists.

The construction site started in May 2020 and has been completed by November 2020.

With its completion, the Royal Swedisch Opera is – beside the Royal Dramaten Theatre and the Kulturhuset Stadtsteatern – the third location in Stockholm using C⋅A⋅T V5.

At a Glance:

  • Very short installation phase of 6 months
  • 109 axis integrated in the control system
