Interior from Gripsholm Castle. Gustav III's theatre
It says a great deal for Gustav III’s interest in the theatre and its importance to him personally that he felt constrained to provide a fully equipped castle theatre for the relatively brief periods which he and the Court usually spent at Gripsholm. The architect Erik Palmstedt was commissioned to design a new theatre in the old Church Tower, with a fully equipped and serviceable stage by the standards of the time. The auditorium ranks as a masterpiece of Neo-Classical interior design, distinguished above all by its combination of intimate atmosphere and monumental form.
