The Royal Opera House's 'Open Up' project will enhance the experience for artists, guest companies and audiences, as well as creating new opportunities for visitors.
The design by award-winning architects Stanton Williams sees the entrances and public spaces made more open and inviting - encouraging visitors to enjoy the building throughout the day as well as the evening. Existing spaces such as The Linbury Theatre and foyer have been transformed to provide improved audience and technical facilities together with a new terrace off the Paul Hamlyn Hall and glazing of the existing terrace at Amphitheatre level.
The Royal Opera House now has a new café, a new shop offering exclusive collaborations, new public spaces together with an exciting programme of events, including live rehearsals, talks and demonstrations. There is also a new restaurant for visitors to enjoy anytime offering great views in the unique, creative surroundings of the Royal Opera House.
