Striking the right balance between heritage and 21st century life – Stanton Williams transformation of the Royal Opera House reimagines the world-renowned home of ballet and opera into a democratised cultural hub for London. Improved access, transparency and new world-class theatre and public facilities extend the life of the Royal Opera House outside of performance hours to allow for informal encounters between people and art. The result amplifies the Royal Opera House ‘Open Up’ mission to take down barriers – both physical and social – and to invite and inspire new audiences and generations.
