Mr. (Don) Knebel, not sure why you would review an opera house and not talk about acoustics or sightlines, but both are excellent at the Operaen in Copenhagen. My wife Cindy and I had the good fortune to hear “La Traviata” there last year and were charmed by this wonderful and surprisingly intimate venue.
Don Knebel may think it looks like a toaster, but it actually fits in very harmoniously with the harbor. The Danes have done a great job of preserving the charm of the historic parts of the harbor, while modernizing others. Copenhagen is proud of its traditions, but not afraid to acknowledge it is a living city which continues to move forward. It’s a wonderful place to visit, whether you like traditional or modern architecture.
