Copenhagen Opera House
The Danish capital of Copenhagen has long been a center for modern design, yet the city had no real showplace of design that has evolved in Denmark over the past 75 years. Well, last year the city celebrated the opening of its very own modern masterpeice, the Copenhagen Opera House. Situated on the island Holmen, in beautiful alignment with Amalienborg Palace and the Marble Church, the opera house seems to float across the water from its baroque counterparts. A gift to the country from Maersk founder A.P. Moller, the opera house is built of glass and stone with a positioning that reminds us of the Sydney Opera House. Patrons can arrive to the opera by boat from the city and make a grand entrance into a marble foyer surrounding the maple clad performance hall. So, next time you're in Denmark, be sure to catch a performance in this world class facility.
