    • Before the performance and during the interval, a scene is played in the the Opera's foyer that is at least as fascinating as the actual performance. On the suspended balconies and staircases, the audience members take their positions to see and be seen. Their silhouettes form a shadow play on the venue's maple-covered shell and bring the building to life, removing any doubt that the performance has begun. The meeting between the performance and the public is emphasized in the hall's intimate space, where the floor and the balconies appear as one continuous entity which extends right up to the front of the stage. The Opera is a serenade – a declaration of love of art and of Copenhagen.
