This is such an interestiing design for a public building. People can walk all over the roof, and the interior is light and bright.

The building architecture leaves it to wandering about the roof and the sides of the building. It was designed so the visitor could embrace the cool sea air and wander about to the very top to view as much of the seascape and the beautiful city/wood interior of the building. It's well worth the time to visit, wander about and... More

Serving the Norwegian public in cultural and esthetic beauty, the Norwegian National Opera & Ballet served its purposes well. Viewing the structure from sunrise to sunset gave the different perspective of its beauty. The sloping roofs cum walkway give its multi-function usage and freedom in expression. The location of the site is well placed with the harbor on one side... More

This architectural beauty is located by the water and the view is awesome! We walked all day and finished our city tour in this building.

We went to see a workshop on a Sunday evening. It was a nice sampling of Opera pieces from around the world. The roof top is outstanding. You can walk up the slopped side of the building to a beautiful view of the harbor. The interior is architecturally interesting as well. If you are already in Oslo, definitely check it... More

On my recent visit to Norway and Svalbard I purchased a ticket to the Cinderella ballet at the new, beautiful and very modern opera house in Oslo. The venue is gorgeous overlooking the water. I purchased a great seat in the 6th row center and very much enjoyed the experience. My hotel was within walking distance and, thanks to the... More

What a fantastic venue. The architecture is stunning and it's such an added bonus to be able to climb up the building and look at the views over the water. When my son saw our photos he commented that it looks like a giant UFO which has landed on the water! We saw a very daring production of The Tales... More
