Nobel Prize Ceremony

The formal Nobel Prize Award Ceremony at Konserthuset.

The Nobel Prize has been presented at Konserthuset on 10 December every year since 1926, with a few exceptions (such as during World War II: no awards were given in the years 1939–44).

During the ceremony, the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra performs from a specially constructed stage in the choir loft, above the podium. The podium is covered by the signature blue Nobel carpet, to accommodate members of the Swedish Academy, Nobel Prize recipients and the Royal family. A statue of Alfred Nobel forms the focal point on stage, and the great organ is decorated with a grand cockade in the colours of Sweden and Norway.

The Nobel Prize Award Ceremony is broadcast on many TV channels around the world, and the event generates considerable global interest.
