Royal Opera House Information

Royal Opera House - Concert Venue | Theater in London.

The Royal Opera House, located in the heart of London’s Covent Garden neighborhood, was known as the Theatre Royal upon its opening in 1732. Two years later, the first ballet premiered at the theater and the following year Handel’s first operas were performed.

There have been three significant renovations and reconstructions of the Royal Opera House, after the devastating effects of fires in 1808 and 1857. The current building has a seating capacity of 2,256 people who can purchase tickets for any of the four tiers of boxes and balconies in the venue. The Royal Opera House accommodates their own orchestra and is home to both The Royal Opera, as well as The Royal Ballet.

Over the years, many operas have been written for The Royal Opera House and made their premieres on its stage. Some critically acclaimed performances at The Royal Opera House include Borodin’s Prince Igor, Prokofiev’s The Fiery Angel, Rossini’s Guillaume Tell, and Mozart’s Mitridate re di Ponto.
