Henning Larsen. Opera House. Copenhagen. 2004
The building is divided into two main parts: the auditorium itself and the backstage area, united by a big metal roof.
The auditorium covers 5 storeys and is lined with panels of oak and maple with gold finishes: materials that create a particularly cosy feel and make the 1700-seat hall look like a huge, precious seashell.
Two wide stairways on the ground floor link the entrance with the auditorium and its balconies.
