One of my favorite stores in Copenhagen is Norr. Located on a side street of the big shopping street Strøget this store has everything a girl wants. And about a third of the store is allocated to men’s clothing, but it’s mainly for women. I really like the relaxed atmosphere and the way the store is set up, with small nooks  and around every corner you can find something new. This store is a typical lifestyle store…you can get everything from some very pretty clothes to jewelry, bags, soap and accessories for the home, making it perfect not only for shopping for yourself but also for some serious gift shopping. Brands include: S’nob de Noblesse, Margit Brand, Suit, Five Units, St. Martin, EOS, Decadent and Sneaky Fox. Continue reading

Opera Main Stage

Main Stage Operaen

Main Stage Operaen

So this Sunday one of my big dreams became reality when I had the chance to watch the New York City Ballet performing 3 choreographies from George Balanchine. Plus it was my chance to finally see the main stage of Operaen (see this post for my last visit to the Opera house) and share this pic of the inside with you as promised. It was amazing. We had seats on the third balcony and as you can see in the picture…that’s crazy high! But the view was really good and the performance outstanding. Little insiders tip from someone I know who sings at the Copenhagen Opera, always take seats at one of the balconies, especially when going to the Opera. It has better acoustics than the floor seats and they are cheaper; we could hear the dancer’s point shoes. Totally worth a visit when you are in Copenhagen!
