The building in its own is a delight to view inside and out. Unfortunately the square in front was under construction with lots of noise and dust.

Nice theatre in the heart of the city. Work in progress in the square just in front, but fortunately you can still take a look at this piece of history of the country.

Me and my friend bought last minute tickets for the opera "The wedding of Figaro". And wow! It was amazing! Both the architecture, view from the balcony, the salon, the opera it self, the very well arranged pre ordered drinks during the pause, the atmosphere,...More

There are tours (in Danish) of the Royal Theatre, but the best way to see it is with tickets to the opera or the ballet. Opera is not my thing, but Royal Danish Ballet is an *excellent* company for ballet. They are probably the only...More

Attended the Nutcracker here, which was excellent. The venue itself is beautiful and perfect for the ballet. Only problem was finding a drink other than over priced Champagne at the interval.

Saw the Marriage of Figaro in the 'Old Stage' ('Gamle Scene'). The music and singing were great; it's Mozart after all! But the mise-en-scène was massively amateurish, poor quality school production-like and cheap-looking to the point where it actually distracted from the overall production. The...More

I am only scoring this 4 out of 5, because i did not get a chance to have a look inside. The facade is so detailed and so interesting, and for an architecture buff, it's a must see. I have been told that the interior...More

This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its
blend of charming old buildings and bold new
architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well
as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner
city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which
consists of three buildings, two of which are new and
situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and
venues of the inner city and its surrounding
