The Royal Danish Opera House is a prominent icon on Copenhagen’s waterfront across from Amalienborg Castle. It was donated by the A.P. Møller and Chastine McKinney Møller Foundation to the Danish people. Spanning 41,000 square metres, five of the fourteen floors are subterranean, it’s one of the most modern opera houses in the world. Designed by Henning Larsen Architects, many architectural details make it an impressive architectural accomplishment. For example, the foyer features Sicilian Perlatino marble adorned with three light sculptures by famous Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson. Other details include the main auditorium ceiling gilded with 105,000 sheets of 24-carat gold leaf, the equivalent of 1.5 kilos of gold. The Royal Danish Opera House also houses the Chairman chairs by Tengler / Onecollection crafted with Sorensen Leather VICTORY / Black.
