Strekassen (the Starling Case) is a piece of highly criticized architecture. Nonetheless, Copenhageners have learned to love this ugly duckling, which floats with all the splendour and ornamentation typical of the Art Deco style over Tordenskjoldsgade and looks out onto Kongens Nytorv. It was built in 1931 when it was decided that the original Royal Theater building should only house the ballet and the opera. Inside Strekassen there is a small auditorium, interesting in its style but not very comfortable. Fine plays are brought to this stage all the time by the talented Royal Company of Actors. Tickets can be bought in the main building just to the right of Strekassen on Kongens Nytorv. The cloakroom opens one hour before each performance.
