Description

The Norwegian National Opera & Ballet is Norway’s largest performing arts institution, with over 600 employees working in about 50 professions and trades.

After the opening in 2008, the Opera House in the old harbour area of Bjørvika soon became a landmark in Oslo. Designed by the Norwegian architects Snøhetta, it is the first opera house in the world to let visitors walk on the roof.

The new opera house offers a rich and varied programme from three stages: The Main House (1369 seats), Second House (400 seats) and the Studio (200 seats). The Opera Roof and Foyer are also used for concerts.
