Last Day at the Opera

After seeing a number of articles in architecture magazines about the year-old Oslo Opera House and then spending an afternoon last week visiting an exhibit on all of Snohetta's work, we signed up online for a building tour in English. We arrived slightly before noon, did some initial reconnaisance, located the cafe for our morning lattes, toured the building with our guide, returned to the cafe for a very relaxed late afternoon lunch/dinner and finished the day with a final rooftop climb. The building truly is spectacular; every element works together to provide an extraordinary experience of fine craftsmanship and artistic details in what will become a beautiful seaside setting. It couldn't have been a better last day.
