“A fine building should be seen…”

“…by morning light, at noon and by moonlight.” ― Robertson Davies

Norway’s Oslo Opera House, or Operahuset, home to the Norwegian National Opera and Ballet and The National Opera Theatre, is beyond dazzling.  Located in the Bjørvika neighborhood at the head of Oslofjord, the building appears to float on the water.  It’s angled structure echoes the ice of the north pole; it’s undulating ramps invite visitors to stroll undeterred around the building.  Dining al fresco is encouraged as the view of the waterways and the surrounding city is unparalleled.  You are encouraged to walk into its magnificent entrance and you should seize the opportunity as the rising ceiling of its hall is as awe-inspiring as the exterior of the building itself.
