Royal Opera House

  • About
    The Royal Opera House, as you see it today, opened on 4 December 1999.

    Its reconstruction actually began on site in 1996 with the last performance in the 'old' house in July 1997.

    In three years the most inadequate of the great opera houses of the world was transformed, not only for audiences, but equally for performers and the hundreds of other people who work here.

    By remaining on its historic site the Royal Opera House has enriched Covent Garden and reinforced its status as part of London's cultural heartland.

    The provenance of the new Royal Opera House began as far back as 1984 when, following the announcement of a competition to find an architect to design a new theatre for the site, Jeremy Dixon with Bill Jack of Building Design Partnership (BDP) won it.

    However, it was not until 1995 following the creation of the National Lottery, that the Opera House was granted £58.5m towards re-building costs.

    The new building was finally realized in December 1999 when the new architectural team of Jeremy Dixon and Edward Jones with BDP (Dixon.Jones.BDP) revealed the £178m Royal Opera House to the public.
