Oslo Opera House - Review
This beautiful white building, which has won many awards for its design, hosts Norway’s greatest performance company. The rich and varied programmes are always vivid and riveting, but plenty of people visit just to be able to climb to the top of the roof. Go at dusk and watch the lights come on around the harbour. It’s magical and romantic. Then come down and stroll along the harbour. The whole outside area is free to be in, and makes for great people and scenery watching. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Oslo Itinerary 2 Days.

Oslo Opera House, Oslo Reviews
This is a really nice place to visit. You can walk all the way up to the top of the building and get a really nice view. It's particularly beautiful in the evening when it's lit up and you can see the lights from the city reflected in the water. It's easy to get here by foot and there's parking lots close by. There's a bus stop close by as well.
Absolutely beautiful! Really nice to sit and watch the sunset and the city. Must walk around to the back of the opera house - there are large windows where you can see the costume workshops. Really neat! I suggest also going at night time to see the opera house in a different light as well
The Oslo opera house a state of art structure in the heart of city center. Exterior parts of the opera house are covered with white beautiful marble that gives you a fantastic view of building looking like originated from the nearby sea water. You can over the ‘roof’ of the building making a full circle of the whole building and having a nice view of the adjacent structures of the city. It is located in the close vicinity of other famous structures of city like the City hall, Noble peace center, National theater etc. . You also have access to a minibar in the opera house.
It is the home of the Norwegian National Opera and Ballet, and the national opera theatre in Norway. Architecture of the Opera House is worth mentioning. The roof of the building angles to ground level, creating a large plaza that invites pedestrians to walk up and enjoy the panoramic views of Oslo.Interior surfaces are covered in oak to bring warmth to spaces in contrast to the coolness of the white exterior. The main auditorium is a horseshoe shape and illuminated by an oval chandelier containing 5,800 handmade crystals. Enjoy myriad of performances from great artists from Norway as well as from around the world.
This site is really extraordinary. The architecture takes advantage of the surrounding body of water. You can walk up the side and to the roof of the structure. It can be slippery even if it doesn't rain. It's a decent slope so older folks might have some trouble walking up. The view at the top is enjoyable. It's relaxing to hang out up there. We didn't explore much inside, but the immediate area was well designed. The bathrooms were elegant as well.
