  • The Royal Opera House has opened the doors to its transformed new home, following an extensive three-year construction project. Find out more: With inviting new entrances, extended foyers and terraces, and a new café, bar and restaurant; together with an extensive programme of ticketed and free daytime events, activities and festivals for people of all ages, the Royal Opera House is now – for the first time – open to the public every day from 10am. At the heart of this project is a brand new Linbury Theatre, the West End’s newest and most intimate theatre, which provides an additional world-class stage for The Royal Ballet, The Royal Opera and a host of internationally celebrated artists and partners. In its inaugural Season, the Linbury Theatre showcases an astonishing range of work, from an 18th-century rarity to 21st-century world premieres – with 25% of seats priced at £25 or less. The project, designed by award-winning architects Stanton Williams, unites 19th-century grandeur with 21st-century elegance. The new bar and restaurant provide delicious food and drink in beautifully designed spaces, and are open to both performance goers and other members of the public. The first in the series of the new Royal Opera House films featuring Royal Ballet dancers Beatriz Stix-Brunell and William Bracewell, this film shows Bracewell in the Humming Chorus from Madama Butterfly.
