Glamorous, charming, it makes a statement, it is imposing in the city square, very close to trams and trains, some fabulous performances, well worth part of your evening to catch a performance if you get the chance.

The Royal Theatre is located on a busy intersection and there is some construction going on at the moment as well, so you can't hang about without going inside really. It's well worth the trip.

The house in todays form was opened in 1874. But already in 1748 existed the Royal Theater. We were coming here to visit the house, not for the performance. It was Don Giovanni, what we have seen in seven different opera houses. But we loved this performance, it was excellent. The house itself is like other oprea houses across Europa... More

We took the guided tour which was at 16.00 every day in Danish and English. It takes about 75 minutes and you will have a great insight behind the scenes, you even get into the royal boxes and on stage and below it.

Visited the Kongeliege Teater to see the Royal Danish Ballet for the Dame of the Camellias. Sensational! The dancing is muscular and full of energy, but controlled. Got to see one of the Queen's sisters in the Royal Box. The Dancers bow first to her...and then the audience.

I was moved to tears. The precision of this piece, in combination with the beauty of the music and the theater itself, what a combo! The outside is far less impressive than the inside. Always worth a visit.

I was deliberating - should I review our attendance at the opera under the title of the Royal Danish Theatre or the Copenhagen Opera House (which also has a listing on TripAdvisor). I decided to do the former, because that is what will be written on your tickets, which you should purchase online, and then you have to double-check which... More

I wanted to visit the opera house and thought the best way is to buy tickets for a representation. The internet buy is easy ,just pay attention if you select the printed option of the ticket, it means you have to print the ticket and have it with you in order to enter the show. I came from Sweden,by train,and... More

The performance was well played, engaging, and intensive. Try to avoid seating at the balcony. It is too warm if the theater is packed as it was during our visit. We had bought our tickets from the theater's website before arriving at Copenhagen. Look for more reviews by MulleEllum.

The Royal Danish Theater is a "must see" when you visit Copenhagen. It has a long tradition with classical music and ballet. Take a guided tour and enjoy a ballet or a play.
