Ada: Yes, I've taken the tour, and it's really interesting. My sister-in-law and I are not huge opera fans although we did actually an opera in London as well. We both found the tour interesting, and I'm reaaly glad I did it.

definitely YES. The bldg is so lovely after the renovation ans the tour is fairly extensive.

The Theatre Royal Drury Lane just behind the Opera House also offers backstage tours which are REALLY fascinating. You even get to go under the stage to see the ancient original hydraulics system.

Ok, I am intriqued. How does one go about getting on a backstage tour of the Royal Opera House? Do you have to book ahead?
