The construction of a new opera house in Oslo had already been discussed for decades, before the first plans for a building made of concrete, marble, glass and wood were published in 1998.

The new opera is considered the largest Norwegian cultural project of the post-war period. The building, modeled after a driving iceberg, looks especially in the light of the setting sun. The opera house is over 100 meters wide and more than 200 meters long.

The evening mood is very relaxing here and the visitors are spread out on the different levels.

Above all, the color-key photograph underscores its unusual appearance by letting the environment fade into the background.
