Impressive guest list.

Can't say I'm thrilled about the new opera, but they're certainly managing to put a royal party together for the opening.

12.04.2008
The Norwegian Opera

Their Majesties The King and Queen and Their Royal Highnesses The Crown Prince and Crown Princess attend the opening of the new opera house in Oslo (20:00).
Princess Astrid or Princess Märtha Louise aren't mentioned... so they'll probably won't attend. I keep my fingers crossed to see them as well.
It would be a bit weird to have foreign Royal Guests (Margrethe and Victoria), but the own Royal stay away from the event.

Does anyone know what kind of dresses we can expect?
Will it be a black-tie and galadresses event?
Or probably a Tiara-event?

The opera webpage: Forside | Den Norske Opera & Ballett says that it is a gala performance, but what that means in terms of dresses or tiaras… I presume we're in the same category as the opening of the 1905-2005 anniversary, at Drammen theatre, (only without the historical aspect) where the gentlemen were in black-tie, and the women in long dresses.

The Queen looked lovely.
I like the light pink suit. That's a color I would love to see on Mette-Marit as well.

I'm hoping we'll see some shots of Mette-Marit without the jacket, because the dress looks like a really nice color. Victoria looks stunning!
