This is the upper level of the Royal Danish Theater, now referred to as the Old Stage. The amazing craftsmanship of Det Kongelige Teater was built on Kongens Nytorv in 1874. You will marvel at the delicate reliefs of theater masks and angels, the elaborate balcony with column-supported archways, the mosaic ceiling and the intricate statues above the dentil molding. This house used to be the venue for opera, ballet, orchestra and other musical concerts. Today, the venue primarily serves the Royal Danish Ballet. The performance company was established in 1748.
