Oslo's new Opera House opens

Yesterday was a historic day in the Norwegian capital, as it was the official opening of Oslo and Norways new pride - the new opera house. It is designed by the famous Norwegian architects at Snøhetta. This firm has designed the new Library in Alexandria, the Norwegian Embassy in Berlin, The Turner Contemporary Museum in the UK, and the Museum complex planned on Ground zero in New York City.

It is covered by white marble from Carrara in Italy, and its exterior and interior design represents the latest in Scandinavian Architecture. A new sight has been added to the long list in the Norwegian capital.
