It does not quite compare to the Sydney Opera house but it is nonetheless striking in style . I did not see any performance there so cannot comment on the workings of the theatre or the acoustics but the foyer is grand the building awesome and its another beautiful addition to an already culturally rich city .

I work near here and walk there every few days. It's striking because of of the perceived scale of the building based on the structures around it and the location. A must see in Copenhagen

Just to visit the building is a very good experience - located just oposit the Royal Palace. The foyer is marvelous - and so is the opera-room.

We didn't actually visited the Opera House then but we admired the building from the gardens of Amalienborg. My companion and host in Copenhagen told me that the owner of Maersk (the world's largest container ship operator) donated the money to build it, which wasn't accepted by many at the beginning because this donation would be tax deductible - meaning...

We liked the Copenhagen Opera House. We viewed it during the Copenhagen canal tour. A beautiful piece of architectural structure.

Fabulous acoustics and design, quirky location (go by boat for the full experience) and surprisingly good quality opera. Try the chocolates in the interval bar. Their "Der Rosenkavalier" was worthy of any global opera centre

We only viewed the Opera house from the outside but enjoyed its modern architecture and it looks great viewed from across the water when lit up at night.

Nice building, cool atmosphere, good place to enjoy!! Right on the bank of the canal it offers a great view of the city on the other side of the canal along with the library building right in front. Very chilly in winters...
