The Royal Opera House receives over one million visitors a year. This is the first ever guide to the magnificently rebuilt theatre. The guide covers the fascinating and turbulent history of the theatre at Covent Garden since the early 18th century, its redevelopment, the majestic auditorium and Linbury Studio, rehearsal studios, and world-class backstage technology.


The vast backstage area houses one of the few 'wagon systems' in operation, capable of moving entire stages and sets on and off the main stage. Also included, the spectacular Paul Hamlyn Hall built in 1858 from iron and glass, now annexed to the ROH as a spacious rendezvous and bar. This pocket guide covers other ROH attractions including exhibition galleries, permanent art works and models, and details of all-day catering facilities and the rooftop restaurant with views over the Covent Garden Piazza.


The guide is a must for anyone taking a guided tour or planning to visit the Opera House in the future, or indeed for all those fans of its resident companies, The Royal Opera and The Royal Ballet, and the fantastic building in which they perform.
