intermission at stora scenen

There's no shortage of theaters in Stockholm. The local epicenter for drama is undoubtedly the Royal Dramatic Theatre (Dramaten) by Nybroplan. Here's a view from an intermission at their most prestigious stage, Stora scenen. One gentleman seems to be late for his cup of coffee, the rest are already stretching their legs.

Please vote for the March theme, if you haven't yet. And please help spread the word too! :)

Mmmm - det är härligt med teater med historia. Stadsteatern är rätt ocharmig på det viset. (Plus att de senaste föreställningar jag sett där varit skräp...) Nu blir jag sugen på att inventera Dramatens program för våren... Se till att du får provision, eller något! ;o)

Tack för kommentaren igår, den värmde och gladde enormt! Replik kommer...!

gorgeous

JM said...

Awesome place and photo too! I love old theaters and this one seems to be a must see.

What a beautiful venue. I love the drape of the curtain, the gilded accents, and the solitary gentleman. Great catch.

Halcyon said...

Very nice theater. I'm surprised everyone went out at the intermission. Usually there are a few that don't like to move!

White Oleander said...

Beautiful theather.

This old house offers a great atmosphere for anyone interested in performing arts.

Bhavesh Chhatbar: Thanks. I never sit in the back row but it's a heck of a place to get an overview of the architecture.

Hilda: We'd have to keep that in mind. Meanwhile, here's an official interactive guide. (Click on any blue dot for the view from that seat.) And yes - the March vote has been cast.

Jenny: Instämmer. I det här gamla huset trivs man även om faciliteterna inte precis är toppmoderna. (Till Stadsteaterns försvar ska dock sägas att mina allra största teaterupplevelser faktiskt inträffat just där. Så arkitektur är inte allt.) Bra tips om provisionen... ;)

Julie: It most certainly is.

JM: The most recent years haven't been that spectacular but they've got a new director now and there's such a lot of history here. I keep mentioning director Ingmar Bergman and of course his legacy is very much alive here.

brattcat: In fact, the drape of the curtain was what initially made me pick up my camera.

Halcyon: I'm sure some did stay behind but the seats aren't particularly comfy so stretching one's legs is a good idea...

Thanks all for commenting.

This is beautiful! We do not have any theaters like this here. I would be wonderful to see in person.

Sparkling...

Per Stromsjo said...

All in all, Dramaten has six stages, three of them in this old house.

White Oleander: Sure is. Do check out the interactive guide I mentioned in a previous comment.

Carrie Hayes: We don't mak'em like this anymore either so let's hope we can preserve the heritage.

humanobserver: Glistening...

Thanks all.

Jag älskar Dramatenbyggnaden, men har aldrig fotat därinne, inser att jag borde ta med kameran vid ett besök nu. Fint fångat!

Onkel Vanja kan rekommenderas just nu för den som vill utforska våra drömmar och som inte nödvändigtvis kräver ett lyckligt slut.

Tack, Helena! Visst är det ett härligt hus.
