Royal Opera House
Covent Garden
Royal Opera House

Antonio Pappano, Music Director

Kasper Holten, Director of Opera

The Royal Opera was formed as the Covent Garden Opera Company in 1946, but behind it lies a tradition of operatic performance which goes back for more than 260 years at its home in Covent Garden.  In each of the three theatres there have been on the site since 1732, opera has played an important role.

The present theatre was built in 1858.  During World War II it was used as a dance hall but after the war the idea of public subsidy of the arts was accepted and the decision was made to establish the Royal Opera House as the permanent year-round home of the opera and ballet companies now known as The Royal Opera and The Royal Ballet.
