Not sure I liked it from the outside, but from the inside it was beautiful. We visited at sunset which we a perfect time, because if you stay a while, it changes again when it's lit up. After a couple of days I grew to appreciate it's beauty from the outside too. A must-see in Reykjavik.

Never expected to see this type of architecture in Iceland. The inside was amazingly beautiful. Too bad we could not see it under the sunlight.

Although we didn't get to a performance, we visited this opera house twice -- once during the day, when it sparkles with the sunlight-- and again after dark, when the individual glass sections show a lovely, different set of views.
The woods, the seating areas, and the views are all well worth the visit.
On the 4th floor, there is a 4-star restaurant, and in the lobby, there is a snack bar.

people: you are reviewing and posting pics of the Harpa which is a different building entirely from The Iceland Opera house!

Enjoy one of the most architecturally impressive buildings in the world. Definitely not only from the outside but also from inside.
