function opera
contributed by Mieke

Danish shipping magnate Mærsk McKinney Møller donated in 2004 personally the new Opera House, used by the Royal Theater, to the Danish state. The house is built at Holmen opposite Amalienborg Palace. At the front it is visually integrated in the harbor space. A 35 meter wide Arrival Plaza, covered by the 32 meter long cantilevered roof, welcomes the audience approaching by boat or from the wide harbor promenade. New 17 meter wide canals have been dug on both sides of the building to create an island for the Opera itself. The back of the building, designed as a lower building block, relates to the new apartment buildings in the area. The main entrance to the Opera House Foyer will be through revolving doors. The Main Stage, heart of the building, is concealed behind a golden maple shell, which appears to float in the Foyer. Balconies and walkways (aswell as the restaurant and terrace on the top) offer a sensational view of the harbour and the city.

How to get there? Bus No. 66 stops right next to the opera house. The nearest Metro station is Christianshavns Torv from where you can catch bus No. 66 or walk one kilometre to the opera house.
