The staged renderings of the Opera was definitely dramatic, much like the Sydney Opera House from which its shape was derived.

Now, however, the design has reached the physical prototype stage and its theatrical debut is as every bit as impressive as one might hope – and created to appeal to mobile retirees and young roadies alike.

The seemingly impossible compactness, too, is now demonstrated through videos, just as the ease of construction illustrated in images.

A fully-equipped camper, the hybrid Dutch/German-engineered Opera blends hard and soft elements, boasting a collapsible durable-fabric roof, two beds, a ceramic toilet, a top loading refrigerator, integrated LED lighting as well as a kitchen with hot water.
