The Royal Opera House Reopens After Decades Of Neglect: Here’s A Quick Tour

GROWING up in Mumbai, Patricia Rozario had a daily connection with Opera House — it was one of the bus stops on her way to town. When she was 12, she also had her appendix removed at a hospital in the vicinity of Opera House but she never actually visited the building. Now, when the Royal Opera House is relaunched after a gap of over 23 years this weekend, the Mumbai-born British soprano Rozario will perform at the historical venue. “For me the Opera House area was just a stop while I travelled to town by bus… I never actually visited it as we rarely went to the cinema!” Rozario told The Indian Express by email ahead of the milestone re-opening of the heritage property.
