Royal Opera House Covent Garden

Royal Opera House

The words ‘Covent Garden’ have long been used as a synonym for British opera thanks to this beautiful and deeply historic venue which is home to two world-famous companies - The Royal Opera and The Royal Ballet.

Originally built in 1858, the current Royal Opera House is the third incarnation of this high culture hub, and legends including Maria Callas, Margot Fonteyn, Luciano Pavarotti and Rudolf Nureyev have graced its stage.

A major reconstruction in the 1990s resulted in the creation of a series of beautiful, modern public spaces to complement the historic grandeur of Covent Garden’s main arena and further improvements are being planned.
