Oslo Opera House - Operahuset i Oslo



Welcome to our new opera house

On April 12 2008 one of the most spectacular opera houses in the world opened in Oslo.

The construction of the new opera house is the largest single cultural-political initiative in contemporary Norway. It took five years to build and the cost is estimated to 500 million Euros. The result is an extraordinary building in white marble with a roof surface that rises directly from beneath the fjord. The opera house is designed by the acknowledged Norwegian architecture firm Snøhetta.
