London isn’t just known for its performing arts, the city may as well have invented the very idea of them. It would be near impossible to list all the great venues for performing arts in London, but there are historic, modern, big, and small venues for everything from opera and ballet, to musicals and one man shows.
Going to the theater in this great city is a tradition in and of itself. There is that Shakespeare guy after all, who wrote and performed in the city during the late 16th century. Today, the West End of London is home to the city’s theater district (Theatreland) where millions of attendees flock to theaters like the Apollo and Criterion theatres for the biggest commercial shows in the world.
If theater’s not your thing, you can still hang out in the West End for some opera where the Royal Opera House and Coliseum Theatre feature both opera and ballet throughout the week.
London performing arts aren’t restricted to the typical cultured fare, there’s also great burlesque and cabaret to be found in neighborhoods all over the city. Venues like Café de Paris and others host burlesque shows on a weekly basis.
So if you want the tried and true performing arts of theater, musicals, opera, and ballet, London has you covered. If you want something a little sultrier, you won’t have any problem finding it here either. No matter what you’re looking for, there are plenty of performing arts in the city for you.
