Norwegian Opera and Ballett house in Oslo

I just had to get this picture of the Den Norske Opera og Ballett house out in the open. The house is not that interesting – a white big house, but on picture with the clouds and water it looks amazing. It was quite different feeling that you could actually walk on the house (up to the roof) and also put your legs in the water while still being in the premises. Lots of turist and locals were having a lunch, walking around and just having a great pinsedag (today was a free day for Norwegians).

The house was opened in 2008, 12th of April.

Gross area: 38,500 m2 divided into 1,100 rooms
Audience areas: 11,200 m2
Stage areas: 8,300 m2

More of my Oslo visit and pics yet to come.
