Tuesday facts - The new Opera House in Oslo


In Easter week vi visited the new Opera House in Oslo. I also shot a lot of photos and put them at Gallery.mac.com in addition to write in my Palm Sunday blog about the visit.

The Norwegian Newspaper Dagbladet has distributed a video where you can see the construction phase from September 2003 till November 2007 in only three minutes. Please take a look at The building video

The designer of the Opera house, the architecture and landscape company Snøhetta has also put photos of the new landmark of Norway (as the Opera in Sydney) at their homepage. Here you also can get a bridge to other interesting projects under the Snøhetta umbrella.

Yesterday our Queen Sonja visited the Opera House and gave the character "very, very Gorgeous". The TV2-interview with H.M.Q. Sonja you may see as a video here.

The Stage Curain by Pae White is itself a fantastic piece of art:

Are you an opera fan Arne?
I love the emotional, sentimental parts as well as the flamboyant dramatic solos.
One of my favourite radio stations is classic FM 100.

Hmm... et utrolig spennende byggverk. Med stein i fra det marmorbruddet jeg besøkte i Italia.
Skal klikke på alle koblingene dine jeg nå, for å se om jeg kan finne noen bilder av den lyskronen laget av Hadeland glassverk, den har pirret min nyskjærrighet i en god stund nå.

Så en del av arkitekturen innendørs på tv i går, da dronningen (som forøverig var blitt bemerkelsesverdig mørk i håret du ) var på omvisning der.

Men det seneteppet Arne, DET lignet på krøllet sammen aleminiumsfolie spør du meg !!!
Blir jo nesten svimmel av å se på.
Ikke det at blondegardiner og tyll ville vært det rette valget, men en mellomting da gitt...

Fin dag til deg

I love the architect of this building, i am wondering is that white area in the front a walk way to the top? Or is it just the design of the building.
Now i have to say that stage curtain is absolutely beautiful. I wonder how they are going to clean this.
