Info for visitors

At the Birgitta Festival, great attention has been paid to audience comfort. The nearly 850-seat auditorium with tiered, cushioned seating ensures good visibility from all over the hall. High-quality sound and lighting equipment guarantee an enjoyable experience. The opera house is weatherproof—the hall is covered with a temporary roof, and the ancient window openings are shielded.



The festival area and the cafés located there will open one hour before the start of each performance/concert.

It is not permitted to bring food and drinks, pets, items that could endanger the life and health of oneself and other visitors, narcotics, psychotropic substances, or any other intoxicating substances into the festival territory.

Please arrive at the festival area on time and enter the hall at least 15 minutes before the performance/concert begins. Latecomers will not be admitted.

It is not advisable to bring preschool and young children to the performance/concert (a ticket must be purchased for the child).


There is no formal dress code at the festival. Please consider the weather conditions when choosing your attire and footwear, and be aware that it may be cool inside the hall.

Photography and recording: Photography and recording are prohibited during the performance. Mobile phones and other digital devices must be turned off during the performance.
