At the webpage of NorrlandsOperan the following, among other things, is written:

"NorrlandsOperan includes a symphony orchestra and departments for opera, dance, music plus a white cube called Vita kuben, our contemporary art gallery.


The mission of NorrlandsOperan is to produce, promote and develop theatrical and artistic works. In addition to its own productions, NorrlandsOperan also hosts touring performances each season. We arrange two festivals - the eclectic art festival MADE, held in the spring, and the Umeå Jazz Festival, held in the autumn. Our vision is to provide a venue for new artistic expression and we strive for our work to be characterised by both the traditional and the provocative."
