Oslo opera house

By saltireblue    
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.

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).

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

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.
