We were lucky enough to have booked tickets for the opening night of the ballet on October 25th. We couldn't believe our luck when we heard Queen Margrethe II was attending that night. Such excitement. We could never have even imagined it would happen. The theatre itself it beautiful and the staff we talked to, were all lovely and very... More

Had the chance to get tickets online to see Don Giovanni and were on the second row...wow...what a treat. Beautiful building with so much history. Will go back to see the Ballet and more performances. A bit disappointing to see people dressed so casual for such a gorgeous place. Specially being in Copenhagen where is "supposed" to be a trendy... More

What an adorable theatre!!! It was a treat to get such great seats, although I was shocked at how small a theatre it is, but that added to the coziness of it. Snooping around the upper floors we found excellent spaces to relax on the intermissions.

If you like classical music go to the opera, tickets can be purchased on line, there is no ticket office which would have been helpful, they have a on line station that dispenses tickets, which can be paid by credit card but it is cumbersome to use and you can't look at there the seats are, We saw Don Juan...

Don Giovanni by Mozart is one of the best operas we have ever heard. If there is an opera or a ballet at one of the houses of The Royal Theatre don't miss it. The Old Scene is a house with traditions from the 18th century, you can allmost feel it.

I was lucky enough to have q look behind the scenes visit and learn more about the history and people over the years. I also visited again in January to see a guest Ballet performance (The Mariinsky from St Petersburg) The Royal Danish Ballet are usually one of the better Ballets in The World

This is a lovely looking building, but alas, there were no tours available while we were in Copenhagen, so we only managed to admire the building from the outside. Still, worth a visit. Perhaps next time... .

Beautiful inside and was able to book ticket online. The ticket was all in Danish and was difficult to understand seat number. There were no ushers to help me out and I struggled to finally find my seat. I saw the royal Danish ballet and that was beautiful.

We saw a production of Napoli here and we were entertain from the moment we got there until the 4th curtain call for the performance of the actors. Getting tickets in advance might be a good suggestion for those of you traveling from aboard. It certainly paid off for us when I forgot our tickets in our apartment and the... More

We stayed for a weekend in Copenhagen in March 2014 and visited the Theater fon the Saturday night. The Theater is very ornate and well taken care of. You can pre purchase your tickets online which is a bonus and makes for an enjoyable evening out.
