Drottningholm

Following the one-hour tour at the theater, you can enjoy a saunter around the magical palace grounds and walk across the street for a private reception starting at 14.30 at Kvarnbacken 1, one of the oldest homes in the famous architectural area known as Malmen. Board Member and opera buff, Martin Dworén, will provide a brief historical introduction to the performance, la finta giardiniera. Drinks and snacks available.

At 15.45 we meet back at the Theater foyer in preparation for the 16.00 performance of Mozart’s la finta giardiniera (1774) this season performed by young soloists from Stockholm’s Operahögskolan.
