Newly renovated Royal Opera House offers new London experiences

The Royal Opera House is one of the best places to see performing arts and ballet in London, and now the “Open Up” expansion has added even more features.

Designed by architects Stanton Williams, the venue’s ground floor has been constructed to welcome larger crowds, and the two entrances are redesigned, particularly the ornate Bow Street entrance that directly connects with the popular Covent Garden area.

“Open Up” refers to the addition of a new 400 seat theatre, as well as the addition of daytime programming, a first in the theatre’s 160-year history.

The theatre, has a rich history of being the third venue on the site, after the two previous ones burned down in the early and mid 19th century. The late 19th-century structure, as well as the main auditorium, have been left untouched.

The new Linbury Theatre can comfortably seat up to 400 people in different configurations and is marked by the warm American Walnut wooden hues of the seats and building materials.

The opera house now has regular, free shows in the atrium of their new space, where anyone can go and drop in for a morning or afternoon musical or artistic performance. On Sundays, you can harness your own artistic talent with inexpensive workshops taught by the theatre’s professional staff.

Londoners and visitors less interested in the arts but more interested in the city’s food scene will be delighted by the addition of a new bar and restaurant on the top floor, designed by Studio Linse.

The London Royal Opera House is located in Covent Garden in the heart of Central London, and is easily accessed from the Covent Garden station on the Piccadilly Line and soon from Battersea Power Station on the Northern Line.
