Oslo Opera House

The Oslo Opera House (in Norwegian) is the seat of The Norwegian National Opera and Ballet, and the national opera theatre in Norway. This building lies in Bjørvika, in the center of Oslo, at the head of the Oslofjord.

Norwegian construction company Veidekke was awarded one of the largest building contracts of the project.

This Opera House was finished in 2007 with the opening event held on April 12, 2008. King Harald V of Norway opened the Opera House that evening at a gala performance attended by national leaders and royalty, including Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany and Queen Margrethe II of Denmark.
