Welcome to the Friends of Drottningholms Slottsteater

The main aim of the Friends of Drottningholms Slottsteater is to give long-term financial support to Drottningholms Slottsteater, so that the theatre can continue as an internationally respected stage for early opera in Sweden. This is made possible by membership fees, proceeds from capital, and contributions from individuals. The Association also awards training scholarships each year to young singers, dancers and musicians who have worked at Drottningholm Slottsteater.

The Friends of Drottningholms Slottsteater is a non-profit-making organisation established in 1935 and has some 1 600 members. HM the King is the Association’s patron, HM the Queen the honorary chairwoman and HRH Crown Princess Victoria honorary member of the Friends.
