The V&A Museum has joined forces with the Royal Opera House to present an exhibition that explores the history of opera from its origins in late-Renaissance Italy right up to the present day.

The exhibition uses everything from original music manuscripts, paintings, posters, photos and set designs to tells its story, and focuses on seven premieres held in seven cities -- a journey of nearly 400 years, culminating in the explosion of opera during the 20th and 21st-centuries.
