An amazing and provoking production that works really well. Mozart’s music is here at its best with a powerful drama full of irony and compelling story about the loveseeking Count. We attended the opening evening with a magic cast. All sang well. Particularly Don Giovanni...More

Needless to say, it sticks out in the Oslo shore. Could not go to a concert due to time, but the interior area we could see was beautiful too

This is one of the most beautiful opera houses in the world. Sloping into the sea, you can actually walk on its roof and peer into the lobby from above. The view of the city from the top is spectacular. Definitely my favorite spot in...More

We did not go inside this building...but the exterior is worth walking to it...and on it. A very unique building design that allows people to walk up it and all over the roof. It does get crowded here. If you are into architecture, this is...More

After reading advisor reviews I was prepared for a dangerous climb. In fact it was quite easy with plenty of non slip and steps to help. The biggest problem was the popularity with plenty of tourists about plus singing groups too. Well worth the effort...More

A beautiful building from the outside and great views from the roof and entrance ramp. Well worth a visit for views of the water . Also inside is great interior wood work. Apparently I was told the men’s toilets are something special to?

Easy to visit quickly and enjoy the architecture. Climbing up was fun and the view somewhat nice except for the construction sites in view.

This is a very interesting piece of architecture. We didn't have time to take a tour inside but we did walk up the rather steep ramps to the roof of this building. There are amazing views of the harbor and the city when you're up...More

Yes, no entry fees, to look around in the foyer, cafe or restaurant (and roof of course). Had lunch at the restaurant, good food.

No it is free, the building is built in such a way that you can access the roof from the outside! It is broad, and safe, but in the winter it does get a bit slippery! Enjoy the view. Helen
