“Norwegian Architecture”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

The new and modern building in Oslo. From the outside, the most striking feature is the white sloping marble roof and allowing visitors to enjoy a stroll and take in views of the city.

“Magnificent Architecture”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

Great sight, love at first sight. Marvelous architecture in white. Very close to the Oslo S Rail Station. Must climb up its roof to have a nice view. Could not see it from inside. Must visit place.

“Beautiful design”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2013

It is worth a vist and it would be fantastic to see/hear a performance there. A walk around the outside gives the feeling of being on a snow covered slope, inside of a wooded forest.

“The marvelous marble floor.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

The opera house will be as famous as the Sydney Opera House, for the fantastic architecture. White marble is used to act as accent and for support. It has different surfaces, some planes are polished, some are treated as if deliberately chipped. suffice to say, there were several different surfaces. the slopes are not one continuous sheet, but shallow steps, of different sizes, angles and shapes. It looks like a space ship from certain angle.

The acoustic is superb , the Norwegians are proud of the new opera house, as they should and deserve.
