Operaen på Holmen is Denmark's national opera house and was inaugurated by Queen Margrete II on 15 January 2005. The building was designed by architect Henning Larsen and was both initiated and built by Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller. With its 41,000 square metres, the Copenhagen Opera House blends in well with the landscape on Holmen. The many square metres include about a thousand rooms with rehearsal rooms, cloakrooms and dressing rooms. The Opera houses two stages, the Main Stage, which seats 1,400 guests, and the Takkelloftet, which seats 200.
Take the canal boat across to Holmen, or take the trip by car. The beautiful building and interior are well worth a visit, and perhaps take a well-deserved break in the Opera's restaurant over a light lunch.
