Royal Opera House
Lonely Planet review for Royal Opera House
On the northeastern flank of Covent Garden piazza is the gleaming, redeveloped – and practically new – Royal Opera House. Unique ‘behind the scenes’ tours take you through the venue, and let you experience the planning, excitement and hissy fits that take place before a performance at one of the world’s busiest opera houses. As it’s a working theatre, plans can change so you’d best call ahead. Of course, the best way to enjoy it is by seeing a performance.
