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.

  • Beautiful building. You can walk up on the roof. It's an interesting way to explore a public building. There are also costumes and masks on display at the side of the building, in the windows of the costume departments.

  • If you have an evening to kill in Oslo, head out here.. don't worry if you don't have a tkt( by the way they are insanely expensive) the building itself is cool.. waterfront makes for some really great pictures

  • One of my favorite places to visit in Oslo, Noway. Just be careful walking around the perimeter of the building, because of unintended architectural elements that are camouflaged can cause you to trip and fall. I've seen several distracted visitor trip and fall; thankfully, no serious injuries to report. On my second visit, I had a chance to take a paid tour of the inner workings of the Opera House. The best part of the tour for me was being on the stage to see the theater from performer's perspective.👍 To the Opera House via Metro: Get off at the Oslo Central Train Station and follow the signs which will take you about 10 minutes to walk from the Cental Train Station to the Opera House.

  • One of the most see in Oslo. The building is simply amazing the views from it are incredible. Very modern architecture and decoration. You can go inside and visit all of the rooms were they create all of their dressing, wigs, etc for the actors. If you have time just go there sit down chill out. The restaurant was actually pretty surprising and the store inside as pretty cool things.

  • The architecture is stunning and alive, and by that I mean functional and loved. The dramatic foyer with its towering ceilings and walks of glass and steel beams is balanced by the stunning textured, curved oak wall winding it's way to the sky. That beautiful wall is actually the series of ramps that lead to seating for the main stage. Inside, the main performance hall is horseshoe shaped - like halls of old, and the oak plays a part in the acoustics as well. The foyer is open to the public, and there is also a lovely cafe. Not enough to dazzle inside, the building rises up from the waters of the Oslo fjord and sings with its glass and marble. The sides slope gently allowing the public to walk all the way to the roof for a nice view of the city (desire the construction right now). The wide roof is cut with long, angular and irregular steps from time to time, which are aesthetically pleasing and fit with the design perfectly, but prove to be a trip hazard for those not paying attention. In the harbor is the gorgeous complementary iceberg sculpture. Sign up for a tour to see some of the back stage. It's free with the Oslo Pass.
