Located in the middle of Umeå you’ll find the cultural institution Norrlandsoperan. Since its foundation in 1974, Norrlandsoperan has developed from a regional opera ensemble into a centre for performing arts. Still with a regional reach.
Norrlandsoperan includes Norrlandoperan Symphony Orchestra and departments for opera, dance, music and contemporary art. In house we have four stages, production workshops, studios and our own ticket office.
We are a publicly funded cultural institution headed by the Managing and Artistic Director, Kjell Englund. Norrlandsoperan is owned by both Region Västerbotten (60%) and Umeå kommun (40%).
