Dalhalla, Rattvik

(110+ reviews on the web)
Dalhalla is an amphitheatre located in a former limestone quarry, and is used as a summer music venue. It is located 7 km north of Lake Siljan and the town of Rättvik in Dalecarlia in central Sweden.

The quarry is 60 metres deep, 400 metres long and 175 metres wide. The open air theater was opened in 1995 and currently has 4000 seats. The acoustical qualities are comparable to the best outdoor stages in Europe.

Dalhalla presents 20-30 events each summer, from June to the beginning of September with a combination of opera, choral works, and jazz and popular concerts making up the balance of the program. In 2005, guest performers came from the Bolshoi Theatre in Moscow, and Mikis Theodorakis celebrated his 80th birthday. On June 30 2007 English rock group Procol Harum performed with the Gävle Symphony Orchestra and the Dala Sinfonietta Choir, conducted by David Firman.

In the immediate area, the Jussi Björling Museum is located.

  • Breathtaking area! Wonderful sound! Outdoor arena with a perfect concert "hall" . Bring clothes for every weather.  more »
  • Feeling like Christmas Eve when going down the long Hill with views over the limestone pit. The atmosphere and acoustics are world class.

  • Couldn't enter so it was hard to see what all fuss is about.
  • Really amazing place!, the only thing I didn't like were the seats. I hope they will get replaced ;)
  • The feel of this place is just amazing. In the middle of nowhere you find this place? Just amazing. This might be crossed of my bucket list, but I'm surely come to this place many more times!
  • Fantastiskt ställe för konsert och opera!
  • Was at Dalhalla concert of Mando D! Volume was terribly high and when they talked not heard what they said. We sat on the 41st series. Why do you have to shout out everything said from the stage? A big disappointment was already in the entre ' n then not even had to take an empty water bottle, plastic that you want to keep because it's useful for me. One last påpekning, ensure that the toilet rolls to the bathroom is open and pulled out from the tank when deployed there! Doesn't feel good to visit Dalhalla again!
