Rawden Pettitt, Associate Director, Stanton Williams leads this very special tour of the recently completed works at the Royal Opera House.
The Open Up project forms a major part of the Royal Opera House’s aim to make ballet and opera available to everyone. The building is more welcoming, transparent and permeable with a host of new facilities and activities.
The public foyers now become a daytime venue for a wider public with expanded and enhanced spaces with a café, new shop and informal event spaces.
At the upper level, a new restaurant has stunning views over Covent Garden. The new Bow Street entrance pavilion connects to street life and provides an external terrace for the much-loved Floral Hall. Within the pavilion, a double-height foyer leads to the new Linbury Theatre, which will work alongside the main house.
