I have not yet been inside, but already the outside of this opera is amazing. I have been there twice, once in the winter and once in the summer. Located at the Oslo Fjord, this building is such a unique sight. You can walk on top of the roof. Pretty cool! Watch your steps when you are there in the... More

A nice building to see, impressive architecture. Go there on a sunny day and enjoy the view on Oslo downtown! You can also get pretty cheap tickets to the opera there.

Only saw this from the outside but what a fantastic building. Made to resemble an iceberg being all covered in stark white Italian Carrara marble. Amazing design giving one the ability to walk up a slope onto the actual roof. Situated right on the harbour front it's spectacular to say the least. Unfortunately I was not in Oslo long enough...

Marvellous building from an architectural standpoint. Very modern and angular. Still surrounding building works. Get there on the number 32 bus or just walk from tram. Great views from the roof which you can walk on.

As everyone else has said, this is a truly unique building with its ability to be a public space in gorgeous surroundings as well as a Centre for the Arts. We loved the free concerts and the fact that the citizens of Oslo use the lower level and terraces for sun baking and relaxing. A nice café on the side,... More

Really great looking and we walked up! What fun. And the building was open and had restrooms at no charge. There was a cafe and tons of people seemed to be using free wifi

I have no idea whether this is a good place for opera or even what the place is like on the inside so I feel this is a bit of a dodgy review! What I can say though is the building is a stunning example of the best of modern design and I am sure it is set to be... More

Didn't go inside but walked around it and on the roof. Great photo opportunities on the clear sunny day we had.
