Tantalisingly close proximity ... but out of reach unless you are in the know! Should add ... this is not a comment on a production merely the building and access. After a (very) long walk on a Sunday afternoon tried to gain access to the building for a look around and was denied access. Despite the doors being open and... More

The opera is a little out of the way (i.e. not downtown) but easy to find. It is a spectacular contemporary building, where we saw a joyful opera (Le Grand Macabre, by György Ligeti, telling a farcical story, and performed by superb artists. We bought our tickets before leaving the United States, online, and we had excellent seats: but it... More

The auditorium is suspended like a great polished nut, and reached by walkways from the various levels. Good sight lines and acoustics, too. For the best experience, arrive by boat. Wonderful! The trip home by bus is less thrilling...

Excellent performance of Porgy & Bess, first-class cast. The building itself is stunning, the interior is spacious, and the seating area is impressive. Comfortable seats and great views, even from the standing area at the very top. Good acoustics.

We went to see Le Grand Macabre performed here on a Thursday night. We made our connections from the metro to the bus without a hitch to get to the 8 PM ahead of time. Even though the performance was in Danish w/o subtitles, we still throughly enjoyed the atmosphere of this fantastic facility. You need to go the fourth... More

Besides being an impressive building that is worth visiting at least for the amazing chandeliers created by Olafur Eliasson there is also a wonderful view over the center of Copenhagen on the other side of the main channel. But of course, this is a opera house and the best of it is actually to attend to one of the quality... More

This opera house is a joy architecturally and musically. I went to a chamber concert in the foyer on a Sunday afternoon and it was absolutely ideal. I arrived early to take in the views from in front of the house, then went up to the foyer where I got a cup of tea to drink during the performance. It... More

Unfortunately no show on, however building was fantastic. River boat bus to the opera house is very good. Building is worth seeing on its own.
