Description

This open-air theatre, designed by world-renowned architect Renzo Piano, was inaugurated on 8 August
2013. It is built over the ruins of the Royal Opera House, built in 1866. The original building was designed
by the English architect Edward Middleton Barry. In 1873, the theatre was devastated by an accidental fire
which occured during a rehersal of Verdi’s La Vergine del Castello. It re-opened in 1877 with a performance
of Verdi’s Aida. Destroyed by enemy bombing during the Second World War, the Royal Opera House was
left in ruins until the Renzo Piano project gave it new life.
