0 Просмотры
First look photos have been released for the brand new, massively redeveloped Theatre Royal Drury Lane, ahead of first performances of ''Frozen'' at the West End venue next month.

Following a two-year, £60 million restoration, the space boasts a plethora of food and drink spaces, that will be opening up over the coming weeks for guests – including the Grand Saloon, the all-day dining area The Garden, serving cocktails, coffee, and light bites and a cocktail bar, inspired and named after high society photographer and theatre costume designer Cecil Beaton. Finally, the Rotunda Bar will get champagne flowing for enthusiasts, under Shakespeare's gaze.

Owner Andrew Lloyd Webber commented: "The task of restoring the Theatre Royal was threefold. How to reinstate Wyatt’s glorious “front of house” rooms, how to fix the 1922 auditorium and, third, how to make this extraordinary building a versatile, vibrant heart of the artistic soul of Covent Garden. I believe that the Lane is now one of London’s most warm and beautiful auditoriums, and the most versatile historic theatrical space anywhere in the world.

"The restoration of the Theatre Royal, uniting my two great passions of theatre and architecture, has been a colossal task rendered very difficult by the Covid pandemic. It simply would have ground to a halt without the dedication of our extraordinary craftsmen and the team overseeing the project in, at times, almost impossible circumstances. Madeleine and I hope that the Theatre Royal will become a vital part of the Covent Garden community. We want to welcome you all through it’s doors all day and every day for everything from cocktails to coffees and lots, lots more."
