Duke of York's Theatre
The Duke of York's Theatre in Covent Garden was built in 1892 and was named after the future King George V. In 1900 David Belasco's Madame Butterfly was staged here and was seen by Puccini who later turned it into the famous opera, and in 1904 J.M. Barrie's Peter Pan made its debut.
Following a full refurbishment in 1979, the Duke of York's Theatre has staged the such classics as The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Little Shop of Horrors, No Man's Island by Harold Pinter and Arcadia by Tom Stoppard with stellar casts including Dominc West, Sheridan Smith, Rufus Sewell, Orlando Bloom and David Walliams.
