The Royal Dramatic Theatre, known as Dramaten, is Sweden's number one theatre, and some of the country's finest actors tread its boards. Ingmar Bergman was the driving force behind Dramaten from the early 1960s, directing a colossal number of productions. The main stage mounts the classics of Shakespeare and Strindberg, mixed with avant-garde dramatic works. The interior is glorious, and spending the intermission in the mirror hall or on the balcony is a real treat. When the bulbs outside show a red light, it means that the main stage is sold out. Dramaten's other stage, Elverket (Linnégatan 69) - a converted power station - has a younger profile, producing interesting modern drama, often with dance or nouveau cirque elements.
