Stockholm in Stockholm County, Södermanland Province, Sweden — Northern Europe (Scandinavia)
Kungliga Operan / Royal Opera House
Anderbergs byggnad uppvisar klassicistiska stildrag från både renässans, barock och gustaviansk tid. Den tar också upp olika arkitektoniska element från det Kungliga Slottets exteriör, liksom från Arvfurstens palats mittemot, för att skapa ett sammanhållet stads-rum i enlighet med slottsarkitekten Nicodemus Tessin d.y:s intentioner. Detta förstärks genom den enhetliga färgsättningen på Operan, Kungliga Slottet och Riksdagshuset. Operans publika rum bevarar en påkostad och representativ miljö från det sena 1800-talets epok.
Operan är statligt byggnadsminne sedan 1935.
The Opera House was built in 1892-1898, according to the plans by the architect, Axel Anderberg. The building replaced Gustav III's opera at the same location, whose facade had been mirrored by the opposing palace. The restaurant was planned from the beginning, and opened in 1895. The eastern façade was altered in connection with internal renovations in
Anderberg's building features classical figures from the Renaissance, Baroque and Gustavian Periods. It also combines various architectural elements from the exterior of the Royal Palace, as well as from Arvfursten's Palace (opposite), to create a cohesive urban space in accordance with the architect Nicodemus Tessin the Younger's intentions. This is enhanced by the unified color scheme of the Opera, Royal Palace and the Parliament House. The Opera's public space preserves a lavish and representative environment from the late 19th century.
The Opera has been a state monument since 1935.
