Erected in 1912, Royal Opera House belongs to a time of history that was renowned for its ornate architecture, progressive culture and art. An iconic landmark, it is an intricate blend of European and Indian baroque architectural styles. It was an entertainment hub for the city's elite nearly a century. From operas to concerts, Bollywood movie screenings, theatrical acts by legends of a bygone era and fashion shows, this stunning venue has seen it all. After being in the limelight for eight decades, it closed down in 1993. Since it played a vital role in Mumbai's cultural heritage, it was decided to restore this building to its original splendor. It opened again in 2016 after 23 years of restorative work with a film festival. Its domed ceiling is decked up with frescoes of legendary musicians and playwrights. Featuring its original crystal chandeliers and box-framed seats, this grand old venue is worth a visit.
