Royal Danish Opera House
The opulent Royal Danish Opera House, donated by the A.P. Møller and Chastine McKinney Møller Foundation, was opened by Queen Margrethe in 2005. Designed by Henning Larsen, the opera house was crafted from exquisite materials, including German Jura Gelb limestone and an impressive 105,000 sheets of 24-carat gold leaf. The interior houses works crafted by famous Danish artists, such as the four bronze reliefs by Per Kirkeby. This mammoth building has fourteen stories, five of which are underground, and a total of six stages, with the main opera stage seating 1,500. Theatergoers can dine at an on-site restaurant before performances.
