The new opera house in Oslo opened in 2008.
It is a fantastic design, and the entire exterior is covered with Italian marble and white granite, and the lowest point of the roof reaches down into the waters of the Oslofjord (see v7)
Free outdoor concerts are held on the roof during the summer months.

My description of the door in my Silly Sunday upload, was slightly wrong. The structure is in fact the tower above the main stage, housing the gubbings to pull the scenery up and down as required.

It is a beautiful building.

View one shows the reflection of the old harbour offices, reflected in the opera house glass.

Cracking set of images Malc, I particularly enjoy V3, V4 and V5. Great reflections and that lone figure. Looks like a wonderful place to stroll around and people watch.

Love these, v1 and v4 for me. Fantastic lines, and the reflections made it really interesting.

Good lines and shapes. It really does look a first class structure.

Like the view in V7 with all the little figures.
A fine set.

v4 & v7 are 'my top picks, today,' Malc, of this excellent series of well composed, colored, & detailed images of the lovely Oslo Opera House. (PS: The latest version of the 'superfine & slick' internet browser, 'OPERA 11.00,'...has been released for download, or 'automatic update,' of course if You use Opera).

Ciao...Peter Wink

A wonderful set, Malc. The minimalist V5 is simply stunning, worth a solo performance.

Looks an interesting building, Malc Smile Reminds me of the 'Nemo' science centre in Amsterdam, that's not any level bits on it's exterior! Great set Smile

What marvellous architecture and a superb set of images, Malc. I would dearly love to see this in the flesh, so to speak. Well captured, all of them.
