Today, the Barbican district of London is a bustling centre of commerce and creativity. But 60 years ago things were very different. The Blitz of WW II did untold damage to the area, and reconstruction took many years. But by 1971 things had progressed to the extent that construction could begin on the ambitious Barbican Theatre complex.
Designed by the firm of Chamberlin, Powell and Bon, after 11 years in the making the building was officially opened on the 3 March 1982 by the Queen. Its construction had benefitted from the financially support of the London Symphony Orchestra and the RSC, the latter of which took up residence at the theatre on its completion.
The cultural heritage of the building has since been acknowledged via the award of Grade II listed building status, which was bestowed on it in 2011. This classification followed a modernisation project undertaken by the theatre which introduced statues and decorations into the complex.
Although no longer the home of the RSC, the theatre hosts a constant, eclectic stream of productions from all over the world. Among the most notable of the countless shows to have graced its stage are As You Like It, The Comedy of Errors and Hamlet by the RSC as well in-house productions Les Miserables, The Maids and The Pretenders (directed by Danny Boyle).
Today, the Barbican Theatre enjoys consistent success and is known for staging both touring and local drama productions. It’s also an absolutely brilliant place to see concerts. The rake of the auditorium is especially well designed, the seats are really comfortable and the acoustic is world-class. Regardless of where you sit, you’ll have a great sight-line and every note will sound pin-sharp.
The layout, size and atmosphere of the Barbican Theatre make it the perfect place to see the best of British and international theatre, and a dizzying array of Arts activities and exhibitions. Recent successes include South Pacific, Rodgers and Hammerstein's Carousel and The Africa Express.
Whatever you decide to see at the Barbican Theatre, we wish you an entertaining and rewarding visit.
