After the British Civil War, only two theaters were instated for 28 years. Those theaters were the Drury Theater and the Royal Opera House. The Opera House burned down twice before the current building was built. Two years ago the Royal Opera House doubled its size and renovated the existing parts of the building. The total cost was over £200 million. The Royal Opera House now has two proscenium theaters and eight dance studios. There are also two sister dance schools that are considered amongst the most prestigious in the world next to France and Moscow.

Theater Space



Lighting & Projections


When the theater was rebuilt two years ago, the sound designers decided to remove the carpeting from the stair and along the theater seat floor. This was to give the theater better acoustics because the singers or instrumentalists do not use microphones. There is no much in the way of sound as far as sound goes for the operas and ballets.
