Royal Danish Orchestra/Det Kongelige Teater og Kapel

About us

The Royal Danish Orchestra is considered to be the world’s oldest orchestra of its kind. No other orchestra can boast a history so long and so rich in tradition – a tradition that stretches all the way back to 1448. Today, the Royal Danish Orchestra is the contemporary version of an unbroken string of diverse court orchestras that have served under Danish royalty since 1448.
