This is an art work. If you are ever in Oslo, you HAVE to visit the Opera House.The architecure is amazing. There are two restaurants that serve very good Food. In the summertime you can sit outdoors (meaning in the roof of the Opera!) and enjoy you latte. Don't miss it!

Embarrassingly enough, when we arrived at the opera house, we didn't realise you could literally walk up along the roof (it was late and dark and I'm sticking with that). When you get there and wonder if those ramps or steps are the roof access: yes they are (no lifts involved)! This a very unique experience, and aside from this... More

The inside was just as beautiful as the outside, the subtitle machine is directly in front of your seat & can be a little distracting but didn't take away from the quality of the show.

Lovely building and surrounding. Sent the pictures immediately to my Architect friend. She loved it and already planning a vacation here with her family.

Take in a great view of the city from the roof of the Norwegian National Opera. A very short distance from the central train station, it's definitely worth checking out even if you aren't seeing a performance. A must for any architecture fan.

If you visit the house of the Norwegian National Opera & Ballet imagine it as girl from the fairy tails. Beautiful both from outside and inside with a sound of music in the architecture you will never forget. Enjoy !

The Opera house is unique in that you can walk on the roof. There is an excellent tour of the Opera which goes backstage that should not be missed.Went there to see Madama Butterfly. The place is beautiful, The view of the building from across the fjord is also magnificent. If you're a fan of architecture or design, it becomes... More

White marble burns the retinas which you will need to marvel at this architectural wonder. Great views of the fjord. The only downside was being hit by a flying peach... Apart from that well worth a visit.

beautiful architecture stands out when you saw it and it has a roof and you can see a panaromic Oslo view. I loved it.

The ultra modern Opera house in the very Oslo center by the seafront, is a remarkable building which completely changes the classic city panorama. Around it, a whole new city quarter is currently being built. The Opera itself is striking, in shiny white marble and glass, with a steep roof leaning to the ground. In that way you can climb...
