Kraljevska opera u Londonu

оперска и балетска кућа која се налази у Лондону

Kraljevska opera u Londonu (engl. Royal Opera House) je poznata operska i baletska kuća u Londonu. Nalazi se u četvrti Kovent Garden (engl. Covent Garden) u centralnom Londonu. Zgrada je nastala 1732. godine i u prvih sto godina je bila scena opšte namene (Theatre Royal). Dobila je ime Kovent Garden. Prvi balet je ovde prikazan 1734. Godinu dana kasnije prikazana je prva Hendlova opera, a kasnije i premijere mnogih njegovih opera i oratorijuma. Danas je Kovent Garden dom Kraljevske opere (The Royal Opera), Kraljevskog baleta (The Royal Ballet), i Orkestra kraljevske opere (Orchestra of the Royal Opera House).
