Home of The Royal Opera, Orchestra of the Royal Opera House, and the The Royal Ballet. Known to most simply as "Covent Garden" the current building is the third of three that has stood on the site, dating back to 1732. The current building retains the foyer, auditorium, and facade as they were following building in 1858, but the rest of the complex is the result of major refurbishment completed in 1990's. Capacity of the main auditorium is 2256 across four levels. As you would expect the acoustics are superb.
