Royal Opera House, London Reviews - Write a Review

  • An opera house and major performing arts centre. It has been known by various names since its original construction in 1732. Its first ballet in 1734. Everything about this place excudes art, quality and professionalism. Many years ago I saw a performance of Sleeping Beauty - never to be forgotten. See website for up and coming events.

  • Saw a spectacular performance of Alice in Wonderland here, an excellent modern ballet. The choreography, orchestra and sets were amazing. The Royal Opera House is a great setting, currently having some refurbishment. The only very minor downside was that although we pre-ordered drink in the bar there wasn't much time to drink them in the 20 minute interval with the walk to the bar in the crowd as you cannot take drinks back into the auditorium so I would advise it's probably not worth getting an interval drink. Other than that it was a wonderful evening and would absolutely recommend.

  • Quite simply a grand and wonderful venue. The seats are comfortable and we had a great view of the stage. The acoustics were great and the standard of the production was great given that it is the premier venue for opera in London. The one downside is the tickets are expensive.

  • A stunning venue offering gorgeous productions. The ballets are truly beautiful. Interval ice-cream always available! Do buy a programme - good value for money (£7) with colour photos and well written, interesting articles around the production. And I'd very highly recommend the back stage tour - it's fascinating to see the huge pieces of scenery and you may even be lucky enough to see dancers in rehearsal.

  • Beautiful venue. Go early enough to have a drink at the bar and do some people watching. You can get cheap seats (restricted view) for about £10 if you just want to go to the Opera House for an experience.
