Home to The Royal Ballet and The Royal Opera, the magnificent Royal Opera House opens its doors for unprecedented access to the iconic building, which covers 2.5 acres of Covent Garden. Giving an overview of the huge backstage area, the historic Front of House and the stylish Paul Hamlyn Hall, the tour provides an intriguing insight into the world of theatre beyond the main stage. It informs visitors on the state of the art technology used for productions and provides the opportunity to see The Royal Ballet in class or a production workshop (dependant on theatre schedules). Or, for those interested in architecture, a second tour can be taken which focusses solely on the story and architecture of the current theatre. Built in 1858 after the previous theatre on the site burnt down, the Royal Opera House has charming period character and with the grand rich red curtains on the stage, the glittering gold proscenium arch and the red and gold lights, it is a truly remarkable sight. Plus, hear stories of the famous opera singers who have performed on the stage and find out exactly why there is such a narrow door through to the backstage.

About Royal Opera House

This impressive building in the heart of Covent Garden has been playing host to major stars of the classical music world since 1858. The third theatre to be located on this site, today's Royal Opera House is the result of a reconstruction in the 1990s (although the main auditorium is part of the original building).
