National Theatre: Olivier TheatreThe largest of the National Theatre's three auditoriums, the Olivier Theatre lends itself to grand spectacles staged by the National. The imposing theatre on the South Bank is the spiritual centre of London's theatreland, and the heart of the British theatrical tradition. The Olivier, along with the more intimate space of the Dorfman Theatre and the Lyttelton Theatre, make up the superb venue that is the National Theatre, home to a significant proportion of London's best productions.
