  • TomK – “Best venue in London. You know its going to be good the minute you walk inside because its so ornate, just like an opera house should be. The seats are good and comfortable and the legroom is like sitting in first class on a plane. You've even got elbow room at the sides. I could probably fall asleep in them and have a good kip. The stage is first class too. It's so deep and the sets are like actual buildings. It looks like they have actually built a proper set behind the dancers out of bricks and stone. And 1 minute later that has all gone and maybe been replaced by a forest. It is amazing what they can do.”
  • ian meyer – “I've been to a couple of opera houses in my life -- the one in paris and the sydney opera house and I think this is probably 2nd after the one in paris which just looks fantastic. I dont like opera all that much (my wife drags me along) but I have find that there's still plenty to enjoy. The stage at the royal opera house is huge and the sets that I have seen look amazing. Sometimes they dont look like sets at all -- it looks like they have built actual proper concrete buildings on the stage, and I saw a forest once too. It is very well done. The best effect that I ever saw was in the nutcracker, when the christmas tree 'grew' by rising out of the stage until it was making the dancers look like midgets (which I think was the intention -- the dancers were 'shrinking' rather than the tree growing. But I’ll have to ask my wife!)”

Review London Underground I am standing on the platform waiting for the train to come. Everyone is looking into the dingy tunnel for the first sign of the bright lights on the concrete wall. When it finally comes it…
