Oslo Opera House

The Opera House is the new landmark for Oslo.

The architectural masterpiece is located right at the harbour, with an angled, white exterior that appears to rise from the water. Architectural designed large-scale windows at street level provide the public with glimpses of rehearsals and workshop activities.

The building's interior is mainly oak, and the main hall is shaped like a horseshoe, reminiscent of classical theatres of the past.
