The Royal Opera House is a very grand affair, a stunning building fit for the very best in opera. Set in London’s funky Covent Garden, the impressive pillared building sits on the site of a previous venue dating back to 1732. This is the home of the prestigious Royal Opera, Royal Ballet and the famously well-respected Orchestra of the Royal Opera House. For the first century of its existence the venue was a playhouse, presenting its first ballet in 1734, then Handel’s first season of operas. The current building is the third on the site, with the first two being destroyed by fire. The frontage, foyer and auditorium date back to 1858 but extensive renovation in the 1990s means the rest is comfortably modern. There are 2256 seats over 4 tiers, boxes, balconies and galleries and the main area is Grade 1 listed. As well as live performances, the venue screens popular opera and ballet productions live across the world. Love Royal Opera House tickets? We sell the full range!
