Copenhagen Opera House - Review
The Copenhagen Opera House was completed in 2004 and in 2005 Copenhagen found one of its most prestigious venue for the Royal Opera House and the Royal Opera Playhouse.
The ultra modern building was designed by Henning Larsen and Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller- forming the perfect partnership to solve architectural problems while still keeping in sync with its ground-breaking design. The floor to ceiling glass windows, use of Jura Gelb limestone, canals that separated the building from the surrounding and bridges made from Oak trees, only scratch the surface of its architectural style.
The place consist of a 6 main stage (1 for performances and 5 for rehearsals) and an experimental theatre space (fondly called ‘Black Box’ or ‘Takkelloftet’). The place uses state-of-the-art technology to make the most of Opera and Ballet and also has a movable ballet floor, stage elevators and some of the best acoustically designed spaces in the world. When here, don’t forget to take a backstage tour of the Opera House- a delight for curious visitors! Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Copenhagen itinerary 2 days.

Copenhagen Opera House, Copenhagen Reviews
The opera house is one of my favorite cultural experiences in Copenhagen. The building is breathtaking and very welcoming. It usually pays off to get a better seat and pay a bit more for a nice experience but would also recommend to sit around the different balconies when having the opportunity for multiple visits to get a feel of the different spots/angles. There is a nice restaurant on the top floor. Great view but the food could be a bit disappointing. However would still recommend to try the restaurant out.
The Opera House in Copenhagen is apparently one of the most expensive opera houses in the world - anyway, not a huge favorite to me. I just don't find the building beautiful or especially exciting at all but perhaps it's just me! When you get inside, it's neat for sure even though I haven't taken a tour or anything like that (only been to one concert there). Don't miss the alternative route to and from the Opera, by small passager ferry traffic.
Beautiful building with excellent acoustic. Even if you don't plan to attend a show but are interested in architecture, this is a must see building if you are in or near central Copenhagen. If you are interested in attending a show, keep in mind that the prices are a bit steep. However, in my opinion it is definitely worth every penny.
Though it's definitely in the high end price scale it's one of the best venues in town and it has a huge variety of events ranging from ballet and opera to rap and extreme sports.
This is a beautiful space, purpose built for its function. It shows in every single way and I can't recommend it highly enough.
