Linbury Theatre Part of the Royal Opera House , the Linbury Theatre was completely refurbished in December 2018 revealing, "a handsome new venue" ( Financial Times ) with a "warm, wood-lined interior" designed by architects Stanton Williams. Part of a three-year, £50.7 million programme of works, dubbed the 'Open Up' project, the Linbury Theatre - which seats up to 406 people - offers a smaller space than the main Royal Opera House stage. It provides an intimate theatre for The Royal Ballet, The Royal Opera and visiting companies - one where the acoustics can be adjusted to suit the scale and nature of the music performed. The inaugural season, which gives us a taste of things to come, includes works from the 18th century through to world premieres.
