“Beautiful new building on the water”
Reviewed September 28, 2013

Interesting design right on the main waterway. Nice to bike around and see it close up or from one of the tour boats.

“Many very good experiences”
Reviewed September 24, 2013

During the years we have had many very good experiences at the Copenhagen Opera House. Last season it was "Il Trittico" and this season we are particularly looking forward to "The Flying Dutchman". Tickets are available to most performances, we prefer the second or third floor. The small stage "Takkeloftet" also has interesting performances, among other performed by the Royal Ballet. Moreover there are several free events during the season. We are not great fans of the building itself, but the lighting and the view over the harbour from the top-floor are excellent. Unfortunately the building is not that easy to get to, we prefer to take the socalled harbour-bus fra Nyhavn.

“World class classical opera in an incredible building.”
Reviewed September 21, 2013

Only groups get a tour so book it if you can. You are lucky if you get Lars as your guide since he is knowledgeable and entertaining. Tickets are relatively cheap. If you like classical opera go experience this incredible building.

“Shut! No explanation!”
Reviewed September 7, 2013 via mobile

Came to visit this amazing building. Checked website (which seems to be very rarely updated) to see if open. Checked at harbour bus and told it was open. It was not - at any point for fives days so far as I can tell. Very disappointing ...

“Brilliant opera house”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Location, location and location. Situated at the water front its a beautiful location, with a good house, and really good chairs. A nice opera experience, good bar in the pause and good entertainment before the opera. Take the boat from Nyhavn to get there, and then back after the opera.
