Royal Opera House
The Royal Opera House is situated on Bow Street in the heart of London, close to Covent Garden tube station.
The first building to be constructed on the present site was called the Theatre Royal, Covent Garden and was erected in 1732 with the money made from an 18th century production of The Beggar’s Opera.
This building was awarded a theatrical patent from the King, which was particularly sought after at the time as the patent allowed drama to be performed. The only other theatre given this power was the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane.
The building also gained fame thanks to the composer Handel, who favoured the theatre and premiered much of his music here during the 1700s.
But, like any long-serving institution, its fortunes have varied over the years. Fires in 1808 and 1856 led to the building being entirely rebuilt twice, and in 1843 the theatre lost its exclusive drama rights, forcing it to rename itself the Royal Italian Opera. Following the popularity of its change to opera, the building was named the Royal Opera House in the late 1890s and began staging operas from all over Europe.
The 2268 seat building that stands today was designed by Sir Edward M. Barry. It was built by Frederick Gye in just six months and originally opened in May 1858 with a production of Les Huguenots by Meyerbeer.
After World War II, the Sadler’s Wells Ballet company moved to Covent Garden to join the Opera Company. United under one roof, they were renamed the Royal Ballet and the Royal Opera respectively.
Among the countless notable shows to have graced this venerable stage during its long history are the premieres of William Congreve's The Way of the World, Gioachino Rossini's Semiramide and George Bizet's Carmen.
Today, the Royal Opera House enjoys consistent success, attracting more than 65,0000 visitors per year. It has a unique reputation for presenting classical and modern ballets and operas from the four corners of the globe. Recent successes include Robert Le Diable, Swan Lake, The Minotaur, The Nutcracker and L'elsir d'amore.
