Officially inaugurated on January 15th 2005, the Copenhagen’s new opera and ballet house is an impressive building, to the construction and decoration of which contributed several artists, such as Per Kirkeby, Olafur Eliasson, Bjørn Nørgard, Frandsen, and Tronborg, to name but a few. Any financial worry was left to Maersk Mc Kinney Møller, the shipping magnate of Maersk and head figure of the associated A.P. Møller foundation, who donated the building to the Danish people, who consider the Operaen as being an unrivalled temple of culture.
