Background

The purpose-built, state-of-the-art Royal Opera House Bob and Tamar Production Workshop in Purfleet, Thurrock, is home to scenic painters, carpenters and metalworkers. Here they turn our brilliant designers’ visions into reality, creating the many different sets that appear in the productions performed on the stages of the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden.
