Royal Opera House

The Royal Opera, under the direction of Antonio Pappano, is one of the world’s leading opera companies.  Based in the iconic Covent Garden theatre, it is renowned for its outstanding performances of both traditional opera as well as commissioning new works by today’s leading opera composers such as Harrison Birtwistle, Mark-Anthony Turnage and Thomas Ades. Some of the most famous singers of all time have performed with the Company including Plácido Domingo, Angela Gheorghiu, Anna Netrebko, Renée Fleming, Bryn Terfel, Jonas Kaufman, Rolando Villazón, Juan Diego Flórez, as well as the late Luciano Pavarotti and Joan Sutherland.
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.  It was the ballet company which reopened the building on 20 February 1946 with The Sleeping Beauty. The two Companies combined for Purcell’s The Fairy Queen that December, and on 14 January 1947, Covent Garden Opera Company gave its first complete opera performance, Bizet’s Carmen.
Opus Arte is the Royal Opera House’s multi-platform arts production and distribution company. Established in 1999, Opus Arte grew rapidly to become one of the world’s leading providers of high-quality classical music content. As well as releasing around twenty titles on DVD, Blu-ray and CD per year, the company has produced and directed programmes that have been broadcast in over 60 countries, licensed content to some of the world’s leading businesses, and won many international Awards.
